More than 31,000 model year 2017-2018 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 allroad, and 2018 A5 Sportback vehicles have been recalled.

What's the problem?

On the affected vehicles, the aluminum trim on the front and rear doors can come loose from around the door speakers, leaving sharp edges exposed.

The sharp edges of the speaker trim increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

What happens next?

Audi will notify owners of the recalled A4 and A5 vehicles beginning in November 2017. Audi dealers will then replace the speaker cover aluminum trim free of charge.
