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 #1

Jan 042003

A4 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


The vehicle has been in the shop 8 times for misfiring of the fuel injectors. Not one attempt has been successful at solving the problem. On one occasion, the car accelerated by itself. On another, the engine continued to run after the key was removed from the car. On another, the car reprogrammed the keys and would not allow me to start the car. On two occasions the car's engine stopped while putting the car into reverse. Audi in miami, fl and in alexandria, va have failed to find the cause of these problems and have "never heard" of such complaints. Despite these problems, Audi consumer relations refuses to replace the car and therefore, I am forced to file under Florida lemon law. This is a disgrace on behalf of Audi and because of these problems and Audi on the corporate level, I would never buy another Audi nor recommend it to anybody else.
