Volkswagen is recalling certain model 2012 Audi A6 vehicles manufactured from April 8, 2011, through May 26, 2011. Due to a problem in the stitching process of the curtain air bag, the seam of the air bag may not be stitched properly.
Volkswagen will notify all owners and dealers will replace the left and/or right curtain air bag free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
