Incorrect Vehicle Production Date Listed On Safety Certification Label

Recall Details

The vehicle's safety certification label has an incorrect vehicle production date. Dealers will install an overlay label containing the correct vehicle production date free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The safety certification label on the vehicle body has an incorrect vehicle production date. This could prevent owners from determining if a recall affects their vehicle, as the improper date is listed. This could increase risk of an injury or crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Audi must be performed by a Audi dealership. Audi will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Audi dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
