WASHINGTON — Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 14,535 2017 Audi Q7 SUVs because the front airbags may deploy with more force than required in certain crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"Airbags that deploy with excessive force may increase the risk of injury," the NHTSA said in its recall summary.
There are no incidents or injuries linked to the recall, Volkswagen told federal safety regulators.
Traced to a software issue, the problem affects 2017 Q7 SUVs built from August 30, 2015, to May 8, 2016.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should stay in close touch with their Audi dealer regarding the availability of the software update.
