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.

I recently purchased a 2008 Audi A4 3.2L cabriolet. About 4 weeks ago, while driving, I noticed it sounded like one of my windows was open, as I could hear other vehicles driving by louder than normal. I tried rolling up the windows several times with no change in sound. All windows were up. Once I arrived at home, I did a walk around inspection of my car, and saw that my rear window was detached from the convertible top. There was no damage to the window or convertible top, just the glue/sealant had worn off (after only 2 years!). there was very little adhesive left on the top-center of the window. It was hanging on by about a 2" strip of adhesive. This trip home was 26 miles on the highway at speeds of >55mph. Had there been a little more wind or the need for evasive maneuvers, this window could have easily detached fully, and hit other vehicles. After doing research online, this is a common problem for this vehicle. The only Audi dealership on island couldn't get me in for >2 weeks. Due to not wanting rain damage, or the window to cause a mvc, I purchased some silicone adhesive/sealant and put it back on myself. I can no longer put my top down without the window separating again.
