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.

Vehicle breaks down in traffic due to ignition coil failures. Replace 6 ignition coils, vehicle runs fine again. This is a common defect of this generation Audi A4.

I was driving on interstate 85 in South Carolina returning to charlotte, N.C. when the engine of my 2004 Audi A4 started skipping severely. After pulling to the side of the road and letting the car sit for a while, I restarted the engine and the problem seemed to minimize somewhat. The following morning on the way to work the engine started skipping severely, and the vehicle seemed to be bucking heavily. I was able to get out of the traffic and pull to the side of the road. I called Audi of charlotte, and they advised to drive the car to there facility if it was drivable. I managed to get the car there driving at 25 mph with the motor skipping heavily. The problem was diagnosed as an ignition coil failure, and was repaired at a cost of $472.04. This was the second major failure of a component of this vehicle in a time span of two months ( fuel pump-6/14/07 ), and as a female driver I am concerned that I'm going to be left on the side of the road at night.
