BEIJING - Faw-Volkswagen (FAW-VW) will recall more than 572,000 vehicles to address a potential problem caused by panoramic sunroofs, China's quality supervisor said Tuesday.

The recall, from May 15, will include 556,196 Audi Q5s manufactured in China between October 9, 2010 and August 11 of last year, and 16,226 imported Audi Q5/SQ5 vehicles, produced between June 22, 2010 and July 26, 2016, according to a statement by China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).

AQSIQ said the recall was due to potential leaks in the panoramic sunroof, which could cause airbag safety issues in extreme cases.

FAW-VW, a joint venture formed in 1991 by Chinese automaker FAW Group and Germany-based Volkswagen Group, will inspect the recalled vehicles and either fix or replace the part.
