Audi is recalling 30,000 Q7 SUVs because they're worried that (*checks notes*) unbuckled front-seat child passengers could get hurt by the airbags? An internal investigation found the second-stage of their dual-stage airbag may deploy too quickly for young necks. Maybe we need another investigation into the people allowing their 6-year-olds to ride shotgun without a seat belt?
