BERLIN (Reuters) – Volkswagen (DE 🙂 has triggered a recall for more than 150,000 Audi vehicles in the US over concerns that their passenger airbags may not be activated, according to a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall is expected to affect 153,152 Audi A3 vehicles built between 2015 and 2020, including the sedan, Etron and Cabriolet models, as well as certain S3 sedans.

The system that detects whether the front passenger seat is occupied could malfunction and switch off the airbag even if someone is sitting there.

Volkswagen will write to the owners of the affected vehicles by May 21st and contact them again as soon as a solution to the problem is found.
