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.

A4 6-cyl

  • 97,000 miles


Hi. I have a 1998 Audi A4 6 cylinder quatro5 speed. It has 97K miles. The ABS light has come on and I understand that it is a common failure. Approx. $1700 repair at the dealer. I understand that VW has had a recall for exactly the same issue with exactly the same part. It seems like such a recall should extend the Audi using the same part, which has a high failure rate. It seems to be a very serious safety issue and should be recalled and repaired by Audi. Can you help me understand why a part and safety issue would be recalled for VW but not for Audi? here is a link to further information: Thanks!
