Recall Alert: 2012 Audi Q5


(Cars.com)

Audi is recalling 13,172 model-year 2012 versions of the Q5 compact SUV because of problems with the sunroof, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from June 21, 2011, through Dec. 9, 2011. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) The affected SUVs are equipped with a front sunroof glass panel that may break in extremely cold temperatures. If this happens while driving, it could injure and distract the driver, increasing the risk of an accident.

Audi will notify owners starting Aug. 7, and dealers will replace the sunroof glass for free. Owners can call parent Volkswagen at 800-822-8987 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
