On 7/15/18 I had a mysterious accident in ottawa county, Michigan, where I was knocked out for several hours and I have no recollection off anything at least a few minutes before the accident. My 2006 A6 quattro 3.2 avant (station wagon) was totaled by the insurance company. The county police rescued me and sent me to the holland hospital for a series of very costly procedures. The police report wrote that the airbag was deployed. And because it was not in a major intersection, a simple stop sign at the us-31, from the information in the report, I suspect I had not faced any impending crash to have had to push the breaks hard, and my vehicle only stopped because it hit a valley shaped ditch in the middle of the highway. Because of the number of related takata airbag failures on those types of cars, by the, on both sides, I suggest a thoughrough investigation of the case. I was blessed or lucky to have not lost my life nor became seriously injured, but my financial losses and legal complications amounted to a lot. I don't know how many people are at risk of not having their lives end because of an unnecessary mechanical failure in the Audi vehicles.

Takata recall, have contacted dealer to remedy safety issue and understand there is no current solution or anything being done about a major recall to the supplement restraint systems fitted in my vehicle. Manufacturer has no future date for safety concern being resolved. I feel unsafe driving this vehicle. Transmission failure at high mileage due to torque converter seal failure and voltage spike to solenoid 3 causing transmission temperatures to rise and result in premature failure of zf 6hp19A transmission. Have contacted manufacturer and zahnradfabrik friedrichshafen ag to report premature failure of transmission, have not heard back. Vehicle was in motion when failure occurred causing sudden speed drop on a major highway, no injuries reported but accident prone.
