Q7 Airbags Are Deploying With Too Much Force

Another day, another set of airbags that are doing more harm than good.

Audi says the front airbags can deploy with too much force and injure occupants, but the automaker didn’t say much about the recall or which company manufactured the airbags.

The issue affects any 2017 Q7 built between 08/30/2015 and 05/08/2016. According to Audi, the issue can be fixed by a simple software update and no changes to the airbags will need to be made. Unfortunately, you’ll still need to go to the dealership to get the update. Not so simple, after all.
