NOT this model yet..Volkswagen Eos currently no recalls for this vehicle. Image an Air bag deploying in your face at 70 NIGHTMARE..Thanks,TAKATA. They might deploy as they like .. or NOT at all. TAKATA Airbag Recall: Volkswagen and Audi Recall 850,000 Cars. AND A FEW others! Vehicles made by 14 different automakers have been recalled to replace frontal airbags on the driver’s side or passenger’s side, or both in what NHTSA has called "the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history." The airbags, made by major parts supplier TAKATA, were mostly installed in cars from model year 2002 through 2015. Some of those airbags could deploy explosively, injuring or even KILLING (forget ISIS) car occupants. (Look for details below on waits for replacement airbags.)

But they did get a "Recall" on the air bags but no one has them in stock yet. I would just like the "Specifics" of them is you have that

Can you just give me the Specifics for the way the air bags work?

A squib, an explosive charge inflates an air bag in milliseconds, the method of activation can be battery "lit" or capacitor fired, based on a 30 degree offset impact from front center. IS.. this what your looking for? If you want a full technical paper email.
