The US recall comes after a series of incidents in China and Israel in 2016.

Audi also is recalling 2011-2017 Q5 SUVs because the sunroof drainage system can allow water to soak into the foam surrounding the side air bag inflators.

Dealers will remove the foam pieces and replace any corroded canisters. Audi changed its creation procedure in July to better ensure the canister, as indicated by the review take note.

The first recall involves 342, 867 Audi vehicles containing faulty coolant pumps that may be susceptible to fires. In a separate incident, the auto manufacturer announced it would recall 342,867 2013-2017 Audi A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 vehicles, 2013-2016 Audi Allroad and Audi A4 vehicles and 2012-2015 Audi A6 vehicles with 2.0l Turbo FSI engines.

The pump can be obstructed by flotsam and jetsam from the cooling framework and overheat, as per an NHTSA take note.

Two separate defects have led to the recall of half a million Audi vehicles in the United States.

The automaker will notify owners of affected vehicles staring February 20 and dealers will update the software so that the power supply to the coolant pump is deactivated if the pump becomes blocked with debris. The driver-side air sacks on 2017 Audi A7s, A4s and A6s and Volkswagen Golf, e-Golf and Tiguan models may not convey legitimately.

On some 2017 Audi Q7s, A4, A4 Allroad and 2016 Audi Q5 vehicles, the seat-belt pretensioners may not activate properly.
