Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 19,205 2017-MY Audi Q7 SUVs because the third-row seat backs may not remain in position during a crash, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers Audi Q7 vehicles manufactured from Aug. 30, 2015, to July 10 of this year. The third-row seat backs may move forward under load in certain situations, such as during a frontal collision. As a result, the vehicles fail to comply with all federal safety standards, NHTSA said.

“If the third row seat does not remain in its adjusted position, there may be an increased risk of injury to an occupant in the event of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.

Audi dealers will install an additional support bracket to the seat, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October.

Vehicle owners can reach Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen’s number for this recall is 72F8.
