Your vehicle might be involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history.
Volkswagen is recalling 734 VW Tiguans and Audi Q5s with Takata airbag inflators.
You’ve probably heard about Takata’s defective inflators by now. They’re the ones that explode with too much force and sometimes send metal shrapnel flying throughout the cabin. Yeah, those. They’ve also been linked to a number of deaths and injuries.
While the majority of Takata airbag recalls have been for frontal airbags, this recall is for airbags mounted on the seats which deploy from the side.
