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.

problem #2

  • 60,000 miles


The lights on my Audi A4 3.2 quattro will flicker and sometimes go out while driving at night time. If I stop and pull over the lights will go back on, but the lights will flicker. Some days I have the problem frequently- sometimes I'll go for a stretch of 5-7 days with no problems at night. After recent research I have been lead to this site to report the problem and make someone aware of the fact that multiple Audi owners have been having this problem also. I was referred from and I hope that a solution will be found for Audi owners. The problems the lights can cause are distractions for other drivers, and it may lead to a ticket or another traffic violation for safety reasons. The lights flicker and a dipped light warning will appear on the dash and it has occurred more than once for my vehicle in the past 3 months.
