GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Nearly 107,000 Audis have been recalled due to dangerous Takata driver's-side airbags that can cause serious or fatal injury.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these airbags may allow too much moisture in, which could cause the airbags to deploy without enough force or with too much force to protect occupants in a crash. Both situations could cause serious injuries and death.
