Small number of Audi Q2/A3 vehicles recalled

Audi Australia is tracking down two Audi vehicles that may have a potential issue with their rear hub carriers.
The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and affects just two vehicles, one is an A3, the other a Q2.

Both of the suspect vehicles were manufactured in August 2017.
The recall notice advises that a fault in the manufacturing process for the rear hub carriers has caused a discrepancy in the material hardness.
As the durability of the affected hub carriers cannot be assured, there is a possibility that the bolted connections may become detached or the component may fail.
What are the hazards?
If the bolted connections become detached or the component fails, the driver could lose control, posing an accident risk to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should owners do?
Audi Australia is contacting all known owners and asking them to contact their nearest Audi Dealer to arrange for inspection and repair of the vehicle.
Further details are also available from Audi Australia on 1800 50 AUDI (2834).
