Audi A6 Recalls
A fuel hose under the hood may begin to leak, causing a fire hazard.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
Because of a malfunction with the passenger occupant detection system of the vehicle's restraint system, the passenger side air bags may not deploy in an accident as they are supposed to. This can cause increased risk of occupant injury.
A fuel leak may develop in the engine compartment.
On 317 vehicles, the seam of the side curtain air bag may not have been stitched correctly. As a result, the side curtain air bag may not deploy as designed.
A fuel leak may develop from the fuel tank rollover valve. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire.
The power operated rear hatch may close unexpectedly, increasing the risk of personal injury.
