What are the defects?

The propellant in the gas generator of the Takata NADI 5-AT airbag fitted to certain vehicles with 3-spoke steering wheels may degrade over time. As a result the driver airbag may deploy with reduced force.

What are the hazards?

In the event of an accident a reduced force airbag deployment could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles should immediately contact an Authorised Audi Dealer by visiting https://forms.audi.com.au/locate-a-dealer or call Audi Takata Information Line directly on phone number 1800 856 770 to organise their free urgent vehicle inspection.
