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

Jan 122006

A4 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles


3 of 4 Bridgestone potenza re-950 tires, size 235/45/R17 93H tires have experienced delamination of the tread on the inside wear edge; alignment on my Audi A4 has been verified to meet manufacturer spec, yet the inside edges of the tires have broken open to expose layers of tire and the integrity of the tire has been breached. In one case, a 8 inch by 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch section completely gave way and flew off the tire. These tires were discontinued by Bridgestone and I now know why. I replaced all 4 tires with Bridgestone G09's and I have not had this problem reoccur. Note, system will not accept Audi A4 as vehicle type, so I used Toyota; I do have a 3.0L A4 quattro.
