Report – Audi A4 recalled in India


Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Over 850,000 units of the A4 recalled globally. 

Following an international recall that was issued for the Audi A4 last month, Audi India will recall 6,758 units of the sedan in the country, reports the Economic Times. Cars made between November 2011 and October 2014 will receive a software update for their airbag control unit.

Over 6,758 units of the A4 are affected in India.

The software update will be performed at the dealership level, and the company has started getting in touch with the owners of the affected cars. No parts or components need replacing. Without the software update, the front airbags of the car may not be activated even during a collision.

Last week, Audi India issued a recall for the Q7 SUV. Over 382 units of the Q7 with the 3.0-liter diesel engine were recalled as they could face engine oil entering the braking system and hence hampering the brakes of the car.
