Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2013-2018 Audi S6 and S7, 2012-2018 A7 and A6 Sedan, and 2014-2018 RS7 vehicles equipped with basic seats (with or without heating). Stress or wear of the body-sensing mat within the front passenger seat may cause the Passenger Occupant Detection System (PODS) control module to malfunction.

If the PODS module malfunctions, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a PODS system repair kit, free of charge. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed July 31, 2018. Owners will be sent a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 74D5.
