Additional information:

Among the 41 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) has recalled an estimated 3,543 model year 2014-2018 Audi RS7 vehicles. The tire information label on these vehicles incorrectly lists the combined maximum weight as 1146 pounds/520 kilograms, when the correct combined maximum weight is actually 992 lbs/450 kg. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

According to the NHTSA, if the operator or driver were to load the vehicle based on information on the tire information label, they could overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Audi will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the tire information label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 8, 2018. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 44N9.
