Volkswagen is recalling 24,754 2016- and 2017-model year Audi Q3 compact SUVs because the brake lights might not activate if the driver applies the parking brake in an emergency, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

“A vehicle approaching from behind may not have any warning that the vehicle is stopping, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA explained on its website.

To fix the problem, dealers will update the vehicle software. There will be no charge for this service. The recall is expected to begin this month.

Vehicle owners can reach Audi customer service at (800) 253-2834. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 45G6.
