Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 106,857 model year Audi 2000-2001 TT Roadsters, model year 2000 TT Coupes, model year 1999 A8s, model year 1998-2000 A6s, and model year 1999-2000 A4s 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.
As a result, the airbag may not properly protect the occupant, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.
What to do
VW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver front airbag inflator with an alternative inflator when the parts become available free of charge.
Owner notifications are expected to begin March 27, 2020.
Owners may contact Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 69AE.
