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.

Headlight dipping warning comes on. Multiple complaints to Audi and on other forums with others having same problem. This is a vehicle safety issue due to headlight going out during random times while driving. Audi is fully aware that over 70 percent of its A4S has this problem which is a major concern and refuses to fix or recall the lights. This can happen on a new vehicle per many peoples complaints online.

I have a 2009 Audi A4, with 26K miles. The left headlight works intermittently. The dealership stated that I need to replace the bulb, but on further research I have found that several other folks have had the same issue. This is a major safety issue and there appears to be a defect that the manufacturer is not covering in the warranty. Can you please help resolve?
