Accordingly, on October 15, the Vietnam Register approved a recall of 566 Audi Q5 cars which were manufactured between July 2015 and December 2018 to reinforce the mudguard.

According to Audi, the mudguard of the recalled vehicles are not attached securely, allowing it to drop and posing a risk of accidents.

The cause was determined to be a design error at the connection point of the mudguard. As a result, the mudguards of the recalled vehicles may not have been properly attached.

Audi claims it has not received reports of any accident due to this error. However, the company recommends that to ensure their safety, passengers should bring their car to an authorised Audi Vietnam dealer for advice and inspection.

The recall period is expected to last until October 21, 2023.

Previously, in September, Audi Vietnam also confirmed that there were 21 Audi Q5 cars in Vietnam that had to be recalled to change the main brake cylinder.

These cars were manufactured between July 2018 and March 2019 and were officially imported to Vietnam.

Audi Vietnam said the firm discovered that the main brake cylinder oil of the hydraulic brake system of the Audi Q5 could leak during operation. Therefore, the brake system can be damaged, leading to a risk of accidents.
