VW Recalls Certain Audi Models

By Staff Writer July 12, 2022

Volkswagen Group of America is recalling certain 1998 Audi A8 and 1997-1998 Audi A4 vehicles equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators that do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflator may absorb moisture, causing the inflator to explode or the air bag cushion to underinflate.

The NHTSA campaign number is 22V471000.

The potential number of units affected is 28,624.

Dealers will replace the driver’s air bag inflator with an alternative inflator of a different design, free of charge. Audi’s number for this recall is 69BT. The vehicles in this recall were mistakenly omitted from recall 20V-056.
