Vehicle recall notices this week have come from Audi and Volkswagen.
A total of eight 2020 Audi Q5 (FY) vehicles have been recalled (VINs found here) due to an incorrect weld which may allow the gap on the adjusting mechanism for the backrest of the front seats to be faulty.
With a faulty adjusting mechanism, in the event of an accident, the backrest adjuster may break, increasing the risk of vehicle occupants sustaining and injury.
Audi Australia will contact all known owners to advise that an inspection and repair is needed. If parts need to be ordered, a courtesy car will be available if there is a delay.
Also recalled were 2016-2020 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line vehicles (VINs found here) which may have a roof spoiler that can be partially or completely detached from the vehicle due to unsuitable adhesive.
Should the roof spoiler detach whilst driving it may pose a hazard and increase the risk of an accident.
Affected owners should contact their preferred dealer to arrange a free inspection and repair of their vehicle, if necessary.
