Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Purchased used 2013 Audi A3 tdi 3 months ago. Only use diesel fuel. Driving onto I80 West when I heard/felt car hiccup, lost power. Coasted to stop sign, tried multiple time but would not start. Towed to dealer who informed me that fuel pump (hpfp) had come apart spewing metal shards into system and that entire system had to be replaced. Research showing documented failures in VW tdi (same engine) hpfp in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Is system safe?

While at a complete stop at a red light, I felt what I can only describe as a "clunk" and the battery light on my dashboard illuminated. The car had stalled, and I had to restart the car entirely in order to continue on my way.

While driving in seattle's notorious stop and go traffic, my A3 tdi, has stalled. It acts as if I have "dropped" the clutch, which is impossible being an automatic!!. this has happened to me on two occasions. There is less than 5K miles on my new car. Both time it has gone immediately into university Audi. First time, no answers. Still waiting on diagnostics from today's episodes.
