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.

2008 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #1

A4 4-cyl

  • 37,000 miles


I recently purchased a 2008 Audi A4 2.0 with approximately 37,000 miles on it. I've driven the car less than 3000 miles and had to add 1 quart of oil every month of ownership (3). Audi dealership says this is normal. Like the previous complaint listed on this topic, I too have see a number of blogs on the subject of the 2008 A4's having issues with excessive oil consumption. I've also seen mention of a technical service bulletin being issued by Audi on this but I've yet to find it.
