Audi recently announced more than 116,000 cars need to be recalled to replace their non-azide driver-side Takata inflators because they might underinflate on deployment. First they explode with too much force, now this? Pick a lane, Takata.

Recall Notes

  • The Takata recall saga has been going on for years.
  • The recalled cars include some late 90's A4, A6, and A8 sedans. As well as a few early 2000's TT Coupes and Roadsters.

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.
