2011 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

I received the recall letter back in April regarding the defective airbags. They're telling us that the replacement airbags are still not available. We are very fearful of driving the car knowing this could in fact could cause death. We know they continue to make new cars with airbags that are not defective, so this is disturbing to know the people that have the older models with defective airbags are being neglected. This is wrong! they need to fix the old cars first before selling new cars!

Takata recall - the intial recall for VW was februay 2016. Six months later there is still no replacement or repair available. There has to be more than one company that makes airbag inflators! danger of serious injury or death - should be a motivator to fix this problem.
