Volkswagen and Audi are recalling 119,000 vehicles to replace dangerous Takata airbag inflators.
This campaign is part of an industry-wide effort involving more than a dozen automakers and 1.7 million vehicles. The chemical inside of Takata airbag inflators can become unstable over time, leading to violent and sometimes deadly airbag deployments. The recall is for both driver and passenger side inflators in the 2015-2017 CC, 2015-2016 Eos, and 2015 Passat.keep reading article "Takata Inflator Recall for TT and R8 Vehicles"

That's a problem, especially for my toddler where her seat-kicking-snack-throwing-booster-seat-bouncing routine creates much more than a simple vibration.
The 2016 CC, Golf R, Tiguan, and eGolf are all involved. For specific build dates, visit CarComplaints.com.keep reading article "Vibrations Opening Child Door Locks in 2016 Volkswagens"
Your vehicle might be involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history.
Volkswagen is recalling 850,000 VW and Audi vehicles with Takata inflators.
You've probably heard about Takata by now. They're the ones that made airbag inflators which sometimes explode with too much force and send metal shrapnel flying throughout the cabin. They're also the ones that have been linked to a number of deaths and injuries. Needless to say, there aren't a lot of Takata fans out there.
But wait, there's more ... replacement parts aren't expected to be available until later this year.keep reading article "More Takata Inflators Recalled"
