The vanity mirrors can easily fell off from the sun visors. I got this problem, and found the heavy mirror is glued by white double sided adhesive tape which will loss adhesion at high temperatures. Then the mirror fell because of gravity. Although, there is a plastic mirror cover, the cover has very fragile thin spin axles. I did not witness the whole process, but since i do not use that mirror so the mirror cover should not be damaged before this happed. So i guess that in my case the fallen mirror smashed the cover, and the cover axles are broken and so the cover got opened automatically and let the mirror came out. There are airbags behind the sun visors, so the falling mirrors and covers are not only a risk factor for daily driving but also may cause severe injury when the airbags are activated. I do not use that mirror, i only use the sun visors, so this is definitely a car defect. The fallen mirror is not showed in my pictures. When i found the problem, the cover was not completely detached from the sun visor, since i cannot close it anymore and it seems like will falling soon, so i pulled it off.

On december 18,2020 i was crossing an intersection. I was traveling maybe 5-10 miles an hour through a green light. An automobile struck me perpendicular at 30-40 mph. The impact was almost entirely taken by the drivers door. The speed was according to the driver of the vehicle and witnesses. The car was struck so violently that the tires on the passenger side were scuffed on the sidewall from them rolling under the car. I hit my head on the drivers window from the impact. I was wearing my seatbelt. No airbags deployed, no sidecurtains deployed. It should be noted the airbags deployed on the kia that impacted me. Subaru tied my car up for 4 months after i requested they come look at the car to determine if it acted correctly at the time of the accident. They downloaded data from my car and have refused to share it with me. They claim that the impact was oblique. That the airbags were designed not to go off if in fact this happens. They also say that the owners manual states that. I read the owners manual. It says that if the impact is perpendicular the airbags/side curtains should deploy. The car was 3 months old to the day. Included are pictures of my car showing the damage. I also sent pictures of how the front tire was bent from the impact.. I have also included the pictures of the kia that impacted my subaru.

Audi recall #69z4, nhtsa recall #19v474 the car was under a previous recall for the same problem, which was? Fixed? By dealer sometime in 2019. Currently the car shows airbag is deactivated, the unbuckled seatbelt warning lights and sounds flashes even when the seat is unoccupied. Spoke the audi of ontario,ca on several occasions. They refuse to fix the vehicle. Service manager will not return phone calls. This is the second time this component had to be replaced, and the dealer is refusing to repair it. The passenger airbag off light stays on, when the seat is unoccupied, this happens as soon as the vehicle is started. The unfastened seatbelt light, and airbag light remain on while driving. Unfastened seatbelt sounds continue for 2-3 minutes after the car is started, then goes away.

The diagnostic shows that the sensor for the driver-side airbag is indicating low ohms (1. 3) compared to standard ohm of 3+ that is required for the airbag to deploy. This could cause the airbag to now deploy as intended during an accident.

MULTIPLE SENSORS AND LIGHTS ON THE DASH ARE ILLUMINATED, INCLUDING THE AIRBAGS, BRAKES, TRACTION CONTROL, HILL ASSIST, TIRE PRESSURE, ETC. I'VE BEEN TOLD THAT THIS IS RELATED TO A VACUUM PUMP ISSUE. OTHER HYUNDAIS ARE UNDER RECALL FOR THIS SAME ISSUE, BUT MY VIN DOES NOT SHOW UP AS COVERED. THIS IS AN EXTREME HAZARD AS THE CAR IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY, AND IF THE SENSOR ARE NOT FUNCTIONING, PROPERLY, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THE AIRBAGS OR OTHER SAFETY SYSTEMS WILL FUNCTION AS INTENDED WITH THIS UNDERLYING PROBLEM. THE RECALL NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE 1.6 TucsonS, AS IT'S OBVIOUSLY AN ISSUE ACROSS THE MANUFACTURER AND MULTIPLE MODELS. THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION, AND THESE SYSTEMS ENGAGE RANDOMLY CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO FUNCTION POORLY. ADDITIONALLY THIS AFFECTS EMISSIONS.

The passenger seatbelt light keeps blinking when seat belt is buckled and it says passenger airbag is off while there is someone in there and buckled up. This happens when parked or driving, we have unhooked the battery to try to reset it. No luck. I am afraid if we were to get in an accident the passenger airbag would not deploy.
