Certain Airbags Aren’t Unfolding in the 2nd-Generation A5

The 2nd generation A5 has a new 7-speed dual-clutch that helps get the car from 0-60 is 5.6 seconds. But before dropping that accelerator to the floor, you’ll want to get the head-curtain airbags fixed.

The automaker says the cars were built with head curtain airbag assemblies that may fail to unfold properly in a crash … Audi says the curtain airbags can get caught on the trim of the A-pillars due to excess fabric on the airbags.

All the affected cars were built after December 8th 2017 and are part of the 2018 model year.
