2007-'09 Audi A8, S8 Recalled Because Sunroof Glass May Detach


WASHINGTON — Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 536 2007-'09 Audi A8 and S8 sedans because the sunroof glass may detach while the vehicle is in motion, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"If the glass detaches from the sunroof frame, it could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said in its recall summary.

The automaker told federal safety regulators it has received an unspecified number of "field complaints" about the problem.

An Audi spokesman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries or crashes linked to the recall.

Audi dealers will install additional adhesive between the sunroof glass and frame. The recall is expected to begin sometime in July. Owners can contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should plan on making a service appointment with their dealer this month.
