As a part of the Audi’s global recall of 8.5 lakh units of the A4 sedan to repair a defective air bag, the German luxury car-maker is recalling 6,758 units of A4 sedans in India, manufactured between November 2011 and October 2014, to upgrade the software in the airbag control unit.
Audi India dealers will get in touch with Audi A4 customers across the country and will arrange for an appointment at their workshop for a software update towards setting the parameters of the airbag control unit right. The campaign requires only software update and no components need to be replaced.
Earlier this week, the Audi India had announced the recall of 382 units of its Q7 SUV in India, manufactured between March and December 2012, to replace faulty vacuum line in brake system as part of a global exercise.
Ever since SIAM(Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) started voluntary vehicle recall for safety related issues in India in July 2012, over seven lakh vehicles have been recalled by various manufacturers including Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, Toyota, Ford, Honda and General Motors.
