Among the seven (7) recalls the NHTSA announced this February comes news of the following:

Logo - Volkswagen Group of AmericaVolkswagen Group of America, Inc. (“Volkswagen”), a Herndon, Virginia establishment and subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group of Wolfsburg, Germany, has recalled an estimated 106,857 model year 2000-2001 Audi TT Roadster, 2000 Audi TT Coupe, 1999 Audi A8, 1998-2000 Audi A6 and 1999-2000 Audi A4 vehicles equipped with Non-Azide Driver Air Bag Inflators (“NADI”) that do not contain Phase Stabilized Ammonium Nitrate (“PSAN”) propellant marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Logo - AudiNHTSA Safety Notification 20V056000 reports that due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, possibly causing the air bag to deploy improperly in the event of a crash.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, the air bag may not properly protect the occupant, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the driver frontal air bag inflator with an alternative inflator when the parts become available, free of charge. Owner notifications are expected to begin March 27, 2020. Owners may contact Audi Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-253-2834 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Volkswagen’s designation for this recall is 69AE.
