Volkswagen has issued a recall for over 150,000 Audi vehicles in the United States over their passenger air bags that might not activate, a filing to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) showed.

The recall is expected to impact 153,152 Audi A3 cars built between 2015 and 2020, including the Sedan, Etron, and Cabriolet models, as well as certain S3 Sedans.

The system which detects whether the passenger seat is occupied might fail and switch off the air bag even if a person is sitting there, the filing noted.

Volkswagen will notify owners of the affected vehicles by May 21 and will contact them again once a solution to the problem has been found.
