Takata recall. I received the notice in the mail on July of 2016, repair has still not been performed. Audi dealer states that they don't have the parts in stock. However, nothing has happened to the car and everything is fine. I am just afraid to have a passenger with me in the car. I shouldn't have to wait for the replacement such a long time.

This is not a complaint about fletcher jones, my Audi dealer. (my wife has an A6 under recall same problem). Your web site says 12 million air bags have been replaced. But Audi tells me that they have not received any indication of when they will receive replacements from takata and I feel at risk driving my car. Why has Audi not received replacements and 12 million others have?

Takata recall- recall initiated in May 2016. It is December 2016, and dealer says no fix is available yet. This is unacceptable. They recommended that no one sit in passenger seat, this is unacceptable and puts myself and my passengers at risk every time I drive.

Takata recall I received a recall notice in July 2016 and am told the repair is still not available. I have not driven the vehicle since then which has resulted in much difficulty and expense. I have uploaded a photo of a friend who was in an accident involving a defective airbag. I request Audi give me a loaner car until the airbag is replaced.

Air bag warning light is on. This is my daily driver so very concerned. Also this vehicle uses an unusually high amount of oil. I have to add oil weekly to the car. It has been doing this for a long time. I just was informed that I could report this problem.

I received a letter from Audi regarding the recall on my takata passenger frontal airbag informing me of the recall and suggesting that I avoid using my front passenger seat. I am appalled that Audi would make such a statement knowing that their customers use the vehicles as family cars, typically having someone in the front passenger seat. Audi has no foreseen date of repair. In addition, the girl I spoke to on the phone from Audi suggested that I call a local certified Audi dealership to see if I can get a loaner car until the problem is resolved as I do not feel safe driving my car, in which I was told by over 10 dealerships that they do not give out loaner cars for this purpose. I am shocked that I am not being offered a safe car to drive until this problem is resolved.
