Audi says sunroof panels can shatter spontaneously

Audi has announced that it is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 A8 and S8 automobiles that are equipped with standard sunroof. Cars covered in the recall were built between March 12, 2013 and July 15, 2013.

The reason for the recall is that the standard sunroof glass panel may shatter. Audi says that if the sunroof were shatter while the vehicle was in use, the glass could injure the driver or passengers and could pose a distraction to the driver resulting in a crash.

Owners will be notified if their car is covered in the recall and dealers will replace the sunroof glass panel at no cost. The recall began on October 21, 2013.
