In collaboration with Al Wattayah Motors Recall campaign for nearly 400 Audi A4, A6, RS4 and RS6 vehicles

17/01/2019


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) in cooperation with Al Wattayah Motors Company launched a recall campaign for 390 2005-2009Audi cars, depending on the chassis number from 5N023815 to 9N901045.


 

 

This call comes because of a manufacturing defect in the Takata airbags installed in the Audi cars which may make the gas generator explode in the airbags, causing metal fragments that can cause damage to the vehicle users. Therefore, the company will check airbags and replace them if necessary.
These recalls underscore the efforts of the PACP in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with the agencies involved in the field, to preserve the lives and safety of consumers and to provide the necessary protection for consumers, in line with its ongoing keenness to conduct continuous reviews of all products offered in the Sultanate's markets.
