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.

2005 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 082004

A4 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,200 miles


At 2,200 miles, a headlight warning light came on, and I took my car to the dealership. I was told that a mouse had climbed into my engine, built a nest out of the hood insulation, and chewed through wires. Audi refused to cover any damages. This incident cost me $1,400. I have parked in the same spot of my underground garage for 3 years, and this never happened to my previous car. I feel Audi should be held responsible for damages due to poor construction of the car's undercarrige.
