Fortune reports that Volkswagen has issued a recall for 600,000 Audi vehicles. The company has discovered a potential fire hazard in one model year and an air bag problem others.

Details on the Audi Vehicles With Potential Fire Hazard

Audi is recalling 342,867 A5, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 SUV’s with model years from 2013 to 2017.

Their turbocharged engines have a coolant pump that can start a fire if clogged with debris.

Details on the Audi Vehicles with Potential Air Bag Hazard

Audi issued a recall for 234,054 Q5 SUV’s with model years 2011 to 2017.

The recall will start in the month of February.
