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

Apr 122005

A4 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,845 miles


A4's have a poorly designed cam tensioner that eventually leaks oil. The cost to repair the item is approximately $1000. The dealer (carousel Audi) even admits to the fact that it is a poor design and there have been numerous complaints about it at the dealer. I've also read numerous complaints about it on Audi forums. The leak typically found shortly after the warranty period has expired. I feel strongly that this should be a recall on all respective cars to have it repaired!
