  5. A jury has blamed Audi for injuries sustained during an A4 Quattro crash. It's a sad story.

    An 11-year-old boy was sitting behind his father, the driver, when the car was struck from behind. The force of the impact caused the driver's seat-back to collapse and the two occupants hit heads. The boy suffered partial blindness and permanent brain damage:

The result is thousands of tons of nitrogen oxide that have harmed the health of Californians. They need to make it right.

    "Audi is recalling about 21,000 A6 and A7 cars equipped with heated/cooled seats ... with passenger occupant detection system modules that can malfunction. Audi says stress and wear can cause problems with an internal connector or body-sensing mat inside the front passenger seat."…
