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.

Failure of right cv joint, boot became detached. In 1996 Audi had to issue a recall for this exact problem. I was told it was due to road hazard but upon inspection it appears to be a faulty connection. I have the part and want to know if taking pictures of it will help you issue a recall on this failure. The boot failed as a result the cv joint fails. Even though I a have an extended warranty the covers the part, they are saying they won't cover it because it was demange resulting from road hazard. It is obvious that this in not the case that it failed either because it was installed improperly at the factory or the seal failed as happened in the 1996 recall.
