2013 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 112013


  • 150 miles


Had a frontal crash as I was trying to click in the safety belt while in motion. The impact was severe enough that my head went forward and cracked the windshield injuring my forehead. I lost consciousness for 30 minutes. This was a new car (115 miles) and none of the multiple airbags went off. Tried to have Audi explain to me why none of the airbags went off and I got 2 nonsensical reasons (one salesperson suggested that they did not go off because the safety belt was not engaged, a customer representative related to me some mysterious angle - 30 degrees from the midline of the car- where an impact would not activate air bags (!). I was also given a lecture regarding the safety of Audi cars. I asked them to test the front accelerometers in the crashed car but they did not see any point in doing it. I have seen a recall for the curtain air bags of last year A6 model. It seems that the sensors of the 2013 A6 I was driving do not function reliably and do not guarantee the safety of the driver.
