For the second time in three months, the 2017 Q7 has been recalled]. So much for brand new and worry free. This time the SUV’s third-row seats can move when they shouldn’t, such as during a frontal collision.
“Audi says it discovered the seat problems during internal testing in May 2016 and opened an investigation to determine if there was a problem with the test, or defective parts. It wasn’t the tests, as engineers found the lower transverse pipe used in the third-row seating was improperly manufactured, causing the seat structure to weaken”
According to reports, additional support brackets will need to be installed and owners should expect recall notices sometime in October.
