More than 171,000 Audi sedans have been recalled for shutting off the airbag when there's a passenger in the front seat. This should give pause to anyone wanting to call "shotgun" on your next road tripl especially considering this is the second time the passenger occupant detection system (PODS) has been recalled in some of these vehicles over the last couple years.
