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.

2009 Audi A4 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012009


  • 1,200 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Audi A4. The contact stated that the steering wheel shakes when making turns and while the vehicle is stopped. In addition, the exterior side mirrors are designed with aluminum interior, which projects a glare. The only object that is visible is the dashboard. He took the vehicle to three dealers and they concluded that the steering failure was caused by the control arm clip and the steering lower arm control. Replacing the parts would not guarantee that the failure would be corrected. The manufacturer stated that there was no issue with the vehicle, but offered to pay the contact $748 per month until the failure was corrected. The manufacturer refuses to put the agreement in writing. The failure mileage was 1,200 and current mileage was 2,400.
