Volkswagen Group of America is recalling 31,323 2017-2018 Audi A4 Sedan and A4 Allroad vehicles, as well as 2018 Audi A5 Sportback cars, so dealers can eliminate an injury risk tied to the door trim, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The aluminum trim on the front and rear doors can come loose from around the door speakers, leaving sharp edges exposed, NHTSA said. The sharp edges of the speaker trim increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

Audi dealers will replace the speaker cover aluminum trim to address the problem. 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 70G6.
