Volkswagen is recalling certain model year 2009 Q5 passenger vehicles manufactured between November 25, 2008 and June 4, 2009. A left and/or right A-pillar trim cover clip may not have been manufactured correctly, allowing the A-pillar trim to become loose when the sideguard head protection airbags deploy during a crash.
Volkswagen will inspect the clip in the middle of the left and right A-pillar covers and replace it free of charge. The safety recall began on January 22, 2010. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-253-2834.
