A defective seatbelt warning has led Audi to recall 702 vehicles across its A4, A5, A6, Q7 and Q8 model lines.
Audi has issued a recall for A4, A5, A6, Q7 and Q8 vehicles from model years 2018 to 2021 due to an issue with the seatbelt warning.
“The seatbelt warning (acoustic warning tone and visual display) may occasionally operate rather continuously, in circumstances such as a seatbelt not fastened or unfastened while the vehicle is moving,” the company says in its recall notice.
“If the warning does not sound continuously there is the possibility that a seat belt may be unbuckled and removed without the driver being sufficiently informed. In the event of an accident this may result in injury or death to an unrestrained occupant.”

  • A4 Avant
