Audi will recall more than 200 crossovers due to a sudden loss of controlMarch 24, 2020
A potential sudden loss of steering forced the German automaker to withdraw the 2019 Audi Q8 crossovers and the 2017-2019 Q7 model, as in some cases this problem could lead to an accident.
According to the US National Institute for Traffic Safety, the reason for the recall was a bolt connecting the steering shaft to the steering mechanism, which could weaken, which could lead to catastrophic consequences. Loss of steering is the last thing the driver wants to get while driving, especially at high speed. According to NHTSA, a revocable campaign could affect about 229 cars.
The German company will soon notify all owners of Q7 and Q8 cars that are covered by the recall of the need to provide the vehicle to the nearest service center of the brand for checking and, if necessary, free replacement of the steering shaft bolt. The recall is expected to begin May 15, 2020.
It should be noted that the recallable cars of the model Audi Q7 2017-2019 years of release have recently undergone restyling. This means that the updated Q7 SUV should not have this problem.
