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.

2002 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 252004

A4 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 32,317 miles


I have a 2002 A4 1.8T. In January of 2004, I had the clutch replaced with 22678 miles on it. On Monday, October, 25th, I brought the car in for another problem and mentioned that the clutch was hesitating. After evaluation, I was told that the clutch was going again and that my warranty would not cover it. The car now olny has 32,317 miles on it. The mechanic said it was due to "wear" by driving. Since March of 2002, when I picked up my new car, I have had the car in the shop for various problems (most of which included electrical malfunctions, shorts, and other malfunctions).
