EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS

Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain 2014-2015 Audi S7 and 2016-2018 RS7 vehicles.

Consequence Summary:
If the operator were to load the vehicle based on information on the tire information label, they could overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
