About 217,000 Audi vehicles will be recalled to replace passenger-side airbag inflators that could explode and send pieces of metal into vehicle occupants.

"The recall is part of massive Takata airbag recalls ordered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration consisting of 35-40 million vehicles in addition to about 29 million vehicles already recalled."

The recall is being split into "zones" that break the country down into sections where inflator ruptures are more likely to happen.

Tell Us What's Wrong With Your Vehicle

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
