Takata Airbag Safety Recall The Australian Government requires a mandatory recall of certain vehicles with frontal Takata airbag inflators to be carried out by 31 December 2020.

This will entail a staged recall of affected Audi vehicles over the next three years.

Owners can be assured that no Audi vehicle is fitted with an airbag from the alpha population.

For vehicles fitted with a frontal Takata airbag which are less than 6 years old, the ACCC and the Australian Government have stated that there is no immediate known risk with the airbag, but there will be in the future.

For vehicles fitted with a frontal Takata airbag more than 6 years old, the ACCC and the Australian Government have stated that there is a risk of injury or death in the event of rupture of the airbag inflator.

Audi will contact owners to let them know when they should visit a dealer to have their Takata airbag inflator replaced.
