Audi will recall a total of 21,978 vehicles in the US across two campaigns.

The Basics: Audi's larger recall covers 21,074 examples of 2012-2013 A6 sedans with manufacturing dates between March 28, 2011, and March 25, 2013, and the 2012-2013 A7 models built between January 25, 2011, and March 19, 2013.

The Problem: In examples of the sedans with heated and cooled seats, the Passenger Occupant Detection System can malfunction and prevent the passenger's side airbag from deploying in a crash.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will repair the Passenger Occupant Detection System.

If You Own One: Audi will begin the recall in February 2016.

The Basics: In the smaller safety campaign, Audi will recall 904 examples of the 2015 A3 Cabriolet built between June 5, 2014, and April 1, 2015.

The Problem: The driver or front passenger seat covers might not have the correct stitching, and this could prevent the side airbag from properly deploying in a crash.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the seatback covers on affected seats.

If You Own One: Audi will begin the recall in February 2016.
