The NHTSA has said that the manufacturing defect in these affected cars could cause the fitted retaining ring of the air suspension strut to become loose, resulting in the air within the pneumatic spring being released. This could result in loss of ride comfort and ride height drop on the defective strut. Also, such issues could result in poor vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash, jeopardizing the safety of the vehicle and its occupants.

The road safety agency has said that the owners of the impacted Audi and Porsche models will be notified of the recall on or before February 10, 2023. The Audi and Porsche dealerships will inspect the suspension strut of recalled electric cars and replace it at no cost to owners if necessary.
