Upon deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to explode.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the driver’s frontal air bag inflator with an alternative inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2019. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298; Audi owners may contact Audi at 1-800-253-2834.
