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.

Audi A4 ignition coil problem. 2 have gone - now I have to wait for the other 2 to go in order to again own a dependable car. This is most inconvenient during a cold winter! I am paying my lease, and am not able to drive the car further than a few miles. I live in a remote area of Maine, where the temperature is well below zero much of the time. I could freeze to death waiting for a tow truck!! why is there not a recall. Why can't the company put a hold on completing new cars and therefore install 4 coils at a time instead of one as they go"? why should I continue to pay for this car unless it is fixed"
