Takata recall - I have been receiving notices in the mail regarding an important safety recall 69R7 - passenger frontal airbag for 2 years or more. Each time I have taken my car for service in the past several years to byers Audi on hamilton road in columbus, oh, I have asked them to replace the airbag and each time I am told that they do not have the airbags and will let me know as soon as they are available. Is Audi compliant with requirements simply by notifying customers of the recall or must they perform the service within a certain period of time? I am very concerned about the safety of my grandchildren.

Takata recall. Iżve been trying to get the repairs done for months but the replacement parts are still not available. It's pretty bad to know about this issue and receive recall notices constantly but there's nothing I can do to fix it.

Takata airbag - it has been 8 months and Audi has no remedy for the problem. I have a car that cannot accommodate the number of people in my family. Audi refuses to give me a loaner car and they have no timeframe for when a remedy will be available. This is unacceptable. As always, the consumer is left holding the bag for the corporation. How is this right?

Takata recall- we received a recall notice 13 months(May 2016) ago regarding the passenger takata airbag in one of our two Audi. In April 2017, even tho we are labeled by NHTSA a zone a, we received another recall notice that an interim repair would be made but not one that would allow us to sit in the passenger seat according to Audi in this car. This is not acceptable. To not be allowed to sit in the passenger seat for safety concerns for 13 months and no one knows how much longer for a $40,000+ car is beyond comprehension. I have contacted Audi CEO to no avail. Ethe dealership cannot help either. So, the car sits in the garage as my husband is on oxygen and broke his hip and cannot sit in the back seat. Either Audi or someone needs to replace the airbag or replace the car with a car we can drive.

Takata airbag I received a recall notice from Audi in May 2006. I have periodically called my dealership newport imports in newport beach ca. Eleven months later I am still being told that Audi does not have a solution to repair or replace the air bags. This seems like an extremely long wait to have a safety issue corrected, especially as there is no date by which Audi expects to have a solution.
