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.

2001 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 052002

A4 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


I am presently leasing the Audi A4 1.8T. The car has died on three occassions and Audi tells me that this was due to the coil spring problems they have been having. On the first two occassions there was no "warning indicator" or "check engine light." They seem to indicate that there is some sort of warning before this problems happens, but in my case there was not. The first two times this happened to me the car just died while driving at highway speeds and would not restart. There was absolutely no warning or light to tell me something was wrong with my car. The third time it happened I did have the light flash and the car ride rough. This car is absolutly deadly. I was fortunate enough the first two times to be able to pull off the road. Do not let Audi and VW fool you into thinking that there is always a warning before this happens. The car is deadly and sometimes there is no warning when it is going to die. For incident date I put the first incident only.
