Volkswagen AG’s U.S. unit, Volkswagen Group of America Inc., issued a recall of more than 150,000 cars on concerns that the passenger side air bag might deactivate, according to a filing to the NHTSA.

The recall, which affects Audi A3 cars built between 2015 and 2020, relates to the system that detects whether a passenger is in the seat. The system might switch off the air bag despite the seat being occupied, according to the filing dated March 22.
