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"
Volkswagen has a BS problem. Wait ... I mean an ABS problem.
Volkswagen engineers found a fault inside the anti-lock brake system control module that can cause the module to fail whenever the electronic stability control or ABS system activates. A driver will notice warning lights for the brakes, the anti-lock braking system and the electronic stability control system.
The issue can lead to a sudden loss of control in the 2009-2010 Jetta, 2009 Jetta SportWagens, Eos, GTI, Rabbit, and the 2010 Volkswagen Golf A6.keep reading article "Volkswagen Recalls Cars that can Lose Control"

But wait, there's more ... replacement parts aren't expected to be available until later this year.keep reading article "More Takata Inflators Recalled"
