Recalled: Toyota Camry & Toyota Avalon test 1-1

It seems that every car ever made has been recalled this year. Not wanting to be left out of the recall fun, Toyota voluntarily called back several thousand copies of the 2014 Toyota Camry, 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid, 2014 Toyota Avalon, and 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. It seems the steering system can fail if you hit a pothole. At least the airbag won’t kill you…

Audi Recalls 101,000 A4/S4 Models

Audi Recalls 101,000 A4/S4 Models test 1-1

Audi's parent compan,y Volkswagon, has called back 101,938 of its kids to the house for some repairs. It seems that specific A4 and S4 models made between February 16, 2012 and October 21,2014 as well as Allroad models made between March 12, 2012 and the same October 21, 2014 are all coming back due to a faulty algorithm (yes, an algorithm, like math class stuff) in the air bag control module. This faulty algorithm may cause the front air bags to not deploy if a secondary impact occurs to the front of the vehicle after the deployment of the side air bags. Obviously, if there is a frontal crash, the entire point of the front air bags is, of course, to deploy. Without them, these model year 2013-2015 Audis might as well be model years 1984-1987 in terms of safety equipment, or the lack thereof.  

Audi/Volkswagon will notify all owners and the recall is expected to begin November 11. The fix is free and relatively painless—just an update the to the car's software. Owners may contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834 with any questions. Read on for the full report ...
