Takata is a nightmare we just can’t wake up from. It’s been almost five years since the first recall, yet here we are staring down the barrel of another recall expansion for exploding inflators.

This latest round of recalls affects over 10,000 A4, A6, S4, and S6. David Woods of has the full breakdown of which model years and in what zones.

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.
