Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 62,812 model year 2000-2001 Audi TT Coupes, TT Roadsters, and model year 2000-2002 A4s & S4s with Non-Azide Driver AirBag Inflators (NADI) that do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant.
Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, possibly causing the airbag to deploy improperly.
In a crash necessitating airbag deployment, the airbag may not properly protect the occupant, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.
What to do
Dealers will replace the driver front airbag inflator with an alternative inflator free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed August 20, 2021.
Owners may contact Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 69CJ.
