Audi Q5 Seat-Mounted Takata Airbags Recalled

VW says 734 model year 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan and Audi Q5 vehicles have seat-mounted airbags that could explode on the front driver or passenger side.

In June 2015, VW learned of an accident involving a 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan where the Takata side airbag inflator exploded and injured the driver under the left arm. VW later ordered a large scale analysis of airbag parts after two failed tests occurred at Takata.

The recalled Q5 SUVs were manufactured between January 13, 2015 and February 3, 2015.
