    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"…
