THE RECALL NOTICE FOR THIS DEFECT WAS ISSUED IN JULY 2016. THERE IS STILL NO REMEDY AND THE DEFECT HAS BEEN DESCRIBED TO PUT ANYONE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT AT RISK OF INJURY FROM METAL SHARDS IF THE AIRBAG WERE TO DEPLOY. THE EXCESSIVE DELAY IN PROVIDING A FIX IS UNSATISFACTORY AND SHOULD BE UNACCEPTABLE.

TAKATA RECALL. I WAS NOTIFIED PROBABLY 9-10 MONTHS AGO THAT THERE IS A RECALL ON THE DRIVERS SIDE AIRBAG OF MY CAR AND THAT I SHOULD NOT ALLOW ANY PASSENGERS TO RIDE IN THE FRONT SEAT. THIS IS EXTREMELY INCONVENIENT. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANY DEALERS THAT HAVE THE REPLACEMENT PARTS AVAILABLE. THIS PERIOD OF TIME SEEMS PRETTY CRAZY TO ME AS THE NOTICE SAID THAT IF IT DEPLOYS IT COULD CAUSE SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH.

TAKATA RECALL: AUDI SENT RECALL NOTICE JULY 2016 FOR PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG, SAID DO NOT USE PASSENGER SEAT, SAID REPLACEMENT PARTS NOT AVAILSABLE. ALSO SAID MY VEHICLE AT HIGHEST RISK SINCE PURCHASED AND GARAGED IN MIAMI, FLORIDA, HIGH HEAT AND HUMIDITY. SIX MONTHS LATER, JANUARY 2017, STILL NO REPLACEMENT PARTS AVAILABLE. UNABLE TO SELL VEHICLE UNTIL DEFECTIVE AIRBAG REPLACED. AUDI CAN NOT PROVIDE ANY ESTIMATE FOR WHEN REPLACEMENT PARTS WILL BE AVAILABLE. WHAT CAN NHTSA DO TO REQUIRE AUDI TO MAKE IMMEDIATE REPLACEMENT?

CAN'T USE THE PASSENGER SEAT OF THE VEHICLE. THIS IS NOT A VALID SOLUTION. WHEN I PURCHASED THE CAR, 6 YEARS AGO, IT INDICATED FRONT DRIVER AND PASSENGER AIRBAGS THAT FUNCTIONED. FIND A SOLUTION WITH AUDI FOR THIS PROBLEM. YOU CAN'T EVEN SELL THE CAR.
