The good news is, the problem only affects the vehicles' front airbags. The fix involves updating the software on the related control module. 

Also good news: Audi's parent company, Volkswagen, says that it knows of no crashes or injuries stemming from the problem, though some incidents that occurred in Europe are being reviewed for possible linkage.

The recall is expected to impact roughly 102,000 owners in the U.S.

Audi hasn't indicated precisely when it will begin mailing recall notices to those owners, though they're expected to go out this month. After receiving those notices, owners can take their vehicles to an Audi dealer, who will upgrade the software on the airbag control module free of charge. 

If you own one of the vehicles listed above and have additional questions, you're encouraged to contact Audi customer service at 800-822-2834.
