PhotoVolkswagen Group of America is recalling 8,037 model year 2018 Audi A5 Coupes.

The recalled vehicles were built with head curtain air bag assemblies that may not unfold properly.

Thus, they fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 226, "Ejection Mitigation."

If the air bag does not deploy properly in a crash occupants have an increased risk of injury.

What to do

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will modify the head curtain air bags so that they deploy properly, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin January 31, 2018.

Owners may contact Audi customer service at 11-800-253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 69T7.
