Volkswagen Group of America is recalling more than 19,000 model year 2017 Audi Q7 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the third row seat back may move forward under load, such as in a frontal collision.

As such, the vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems."

If the third row seat does not remain in its adjusted position, there may be an increased risk of injury to an occupant in the event of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin in October 2016.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional support bracket to the seat, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 72F8.
