Audi withdraws 576 000 cars. BMW sends 23 000 more to Service-Station

Audi sends 576 000 vehicles to service-station due to danger of inflammation and potential problems with airbags, Fortune writes.

For this purpose, approximately 342 870 rides of the models A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5, which were assembled between 2015 and 2017, will be withdrawn.

The cars have turbo engines with a pump for cooling liquid, which can lead to a fire if jammed with parts.
Also, cars from the 234 and 054 series, which were built after 2011and which there is a risk of activating the lateral airbag, will be withdrawn.

The company will begin its action this month.
In the background of this, German concern BMW is withdrawing 230 000 vehicles in the USA, Market Watch writes.

The measure is necessary due to the danger of potential problems with airbags in the rides, which were assembled by Japanese manufacturer Takata.

Sources from the company declared that a small percentage of these cars may contain a defect component.

The action spans around cars from the series BMW3, which were produced between 2000 and 2002, and also, as well as ones from the BMW 5 model, which left the plants between 2001 and 2003.
Among the concerned by the measure models are also SUV, which were assembled between 2001 and 2003.

11 lethal cases and 180 injuries involved incidents in the USA are connected to Takata airbags, information from federal regulating organs shows.
