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.

Failure of ABS brake control unit in an Audi 2001 A4 while driving on the freeway with snow. It occurred in salt lake city, Utah. ABS brake light came on and the ABS brakes weren't working driving on snow and needed to be replaced. $710 was the cost of the repair for a faulty unit and a very common problem that Audi knows about it. Good thing that I was going really slow and I was exiting the slippery freeway at the time and I didn't slide. Thank you!
