Among the 52 recalls the NHTSA has announced this June comes news of the following:

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”) as recalled an estimated 139,249 model year certain 2013-2018 Audi S6 and S7, 2012-2018 A7 and A6 Sedan, and 2014-2018 RS7 vehicles equipped with basic seats (with or without heating). Stress or wear of the body-sensing mat within the front passenger seat may cause the Passenger Occupant Detection System (“PODS”) control module to malfunction.

According to the NHTSA, if the PODS module malfunctions, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a PODS system repair kit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 31, 2018. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 74D5.
