Audi has recalled 2017 Q7 yet again. The automaker has recalled over 19,000 examples of the new crossover. The issue is that the vehicle's third-row seat backs may move forward during a frontal collision.
The manufacturer says, "If the third-row seat does not remain in its position, there may be an increased risk of injury to an occupant, in the event of a crash."
The seat moving back under load increases the chance of injury and this issue violates Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 207, "Seating Systems."
t's mandatory, this recall because seats shouldn't move during collisions. This actually the second time in a week when the German car manufacturer has issued a recall for the new model. The first recall was due to possible power steering assist fail.
The seat issue fix is relatively simple. Audi will take the recalled Q7s and they will add an additional bracket to the seat back.
