KK2K Manual 4.2 V8 Muscle Car (Sorta) February 21, 2019
Overall Score
2012 was the last year to grab a V8 with a manual gearbox and holy heck its awesome. The engine is so well balanced and smooth, the 350/320 HP/TQ really sits well in this heavy car. I have shamelessly won a few street passes against a 981, Mustang, and a few Japanese cars. I was slightly humbled however when a newer R8 left me in the dust without any real effort. Inside the S5 it feels like a fighter plane cockpit. Everything is slightly angled towards the driver, and every switch has this beautiful tactile feel to it that really gets the fizz going when you press them. The climate controls are pretty annoying... I dont need 12 fan speed settings (but if anyone takes them away from me ill kill them). I dont need 6 heated seat settings and I really dont need 8 options for where the bloody air flow is directed (but again, please dont take them away from me). The German attention to detail really shows in this car. More Annoying bits: -All the dials spin counter-intuitively to how you would imagine. Turning them clockwise makes the menu go up, not down. -The small center screen in the cluster needs several menu presses to revert back to the original screen after making a call or selecting a new track. -If your washer fluid or gas are low, you will see nothing else in the top part of the cluster. Its very annoying.. yes I know the gas is low, now change back to the radio station.. -Also, the gas light comes on almost 100km pre-maturely. -Fuel economy isnt great... around 500km to a tank depending how heavy footed you are. -Parts are as expensive as I have come to expect with German cars.

Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Safety Mfr
Issue: On certain vehicles, the passenger occupant detection system (PODS) may malfunction. This could cause the airbag system to turn off the passenger-front airbag even when a passenger is seated. Note: This problem would cause an error message to display on the instrument panel and a warning chime to sound. The airbag indicator light would also display "passenger airbag off". Safety Risk: An airbag that is turned off could increase the risk of injury to a passenger in a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to install cable ties on the wiring harness under the front passenger seat.

On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the driver frontal airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. As a result, if the vehicle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants, and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function. These issues could increase the risk of injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the driver frontal airbag inflator. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk, and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected. Additional Note: For the Audi A4, S4, A5 and S5 models, this campaign only affects the Cabriolet versions of these models. Also to Note: This recall supersedes the Audi brand vehicles subject to recall 2016-064 (Audi Recall 69N1) and 2016-065 (69N2). Audi brand vehicles completed under the previous 2016-064 and 2016-065 recalls require repair under this recall, as the previous recall remedy was an interim repair. Interim repair parts must be replaced with final repair parts.

On certain Cabriolet model vehicles, components of the rear seat safety belt pretensioners could detach during pretensioner deployment, potentially entering the passenger compartment. This could increase the risk of injury to the occupants. Correction: Dealers will replace the affected rear seat safety belt retractors/pretensioners.

On certain vehicles, the driver frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the front driver airbag inflator. Note: This campaign only affects the Audi A5 and Audi S5 Cabriolet models.

Correction: Dealers will replace the fuel rails and corresponding fuel injector seals.
