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.

Car would pop out of first gear at slow speeds during a turn. Had to fight with dealer & Audi of America for 4 months before they would acknowledge a problem or fix it. They finally replaced the transmission, and that solved the problem. We have several other non-safety problems that the dealer is slow to acknowledge and repair. We switched dealers in the denver area to mcdonald after the problems with prestige. Mcdonald's attitude towards customer service is no better. If you want a report/complaint on the additional, non-safety related problems, let us know.
