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.

Volkswagen and Audi area about the same car and Volkswagen recalled them and have a cost of $50 for a new mass air flow sensor while Audi has the same problems with the sensor and no recall and cost is $400. Not fair to the consumer cause its a very common part to go out on Audi as well as Volkswagen. Called manufacturer and wont do a thing for me cause im the second owner. Should be recalled just check to see the problems with those maf sensors.
