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.

At 54000 miles, 4,000 miles beyond the warranty, my 2003 Audi A4 1.8T's clutch simply disintegrated. Audi declared it a wear and tear item and would not offer any assistance other than a "sympathetic ear". to have a car I purchased costing well over $30,000 have such a problem happen it unreasonable as far as I am concerned and the callousness of Audi has forever lost them a loyal customer. Every chance I get to let others know my experience with this brand I take. Do you think Audi even cares? repair was well over $1500 out of my pocket.
