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.

2003 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 082008

A4 CAB 1.8t

  • CVT transmission
  • 52,000 miles


Needed new transmission 8500.00

The transmission for this year is the worst ever design. Built in computer is not replaceable. Audi know of the issue but did not recall the cars. I argued with Audi of America and they took care of 40% on the labor only. This was the last Audi i've ever driven. My advise for Audi drivers, after the factory warranty expires, sell or trade in the car. I've owned an A4 and S4...high maintenance cars....the worst ofthe German prove my gripes....look at the roads, do you see old Audi's running around...I bet they are all at the junk yards.
