Audi Viet Nam is recalling 33 Audi Q3 units produced from June 2016 to November 2016 to check and update the information control system software.

The recall is under a global recalling campaign of the Audi AG. It was conducted after the Audi AG discovered that the brake lights of the vehicle did not activate when the parking brake was used during emergency braking.

In some cases, when using the handbrake, the emergency brake lights integrated into the module were not transmitted through the information control system to activate the brake lights. A vehicle approaching from behind, therefore, may not get any warning that the vehicle was stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.

Audi Viet Nam will collaborate with the Register Viet Nam to supervise the campaign, which will take place until October 31, 2017.

The company’s agents and authorised dealers will notify the vehicle owners and will update the vehicle software, free of charge. As for vehicles directly imported from other countries, the owners can enjoy service from Audi Viet Nam if it is approved from Audi AG. — VNS
