NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V096000

Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Components: EQUIPMENT

Potential Number of Units Affected: 3,543

Summary

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2014-2015 Audi S7 and 2016-2018 RS7 vehicles because they have the wrong information on their tire labels.  The labels incorrectly list the combined maximum weight as 1146 lbs/520 kg, when the correct combined maximum weight is actually 992 lbs/450 kg. 

If the operator were to load the vehicle based on information on the tire information label, they could overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tire information label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 8, 2018. Owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 44N9.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
