Automobile manufacturers issue recalls when mechanical, electric, or other defects render vehicles unsafe or unsuitable for driving. Manufacturers are responsible for providing remedies to defective vehicles or components. Audi began manufacturing Q7, a full-size luxury crossover, in 2006 and since that time the model has been subject to just one recall.
History of the Q7
Audi introduced the Q7, marketed as a performance sports utility vehicle, in 2006. The Q7 features seven passenger seating, a 350 horsepower 4.2-litre V8 engine, and Audi's trademarked quattro all-wheel drive. In 2007 Audi introduced a diesel version of the Q7, the Q7 V12 TDI.
Beginning September 14, 2007,Audi recalled the 2007-2008 Audi Q7 due to a defective boot lid. An electric motor and clutch along with two gas struts work together to close the boot lid. The sensors could malfunction when closing the boot lid and rapidly close it, potentially resulting in injury.
Certified Audi dealers will install new software to remedy the defective boot lid at no cost. To locate a certified Audi dealer, call Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
