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.

Takata recall: I recently learned that both my driver side and passenger side takata airbags were recalled on my 2009 Audi A4. I have called and visited two dealerships in person and made over 5 phone calls to the manufacturer to try to get my vehicle's repair escalated, as my vehicle began it's "life" in Florida, and humid regions are to be given priority, but to no avail. Audi, the manufacturer, has instructed me to talk directly to dealerships and the dealerships tell me to call Audi international. Both are pointing fingers at the other, and no one is doing anything to aid the situation. I have asked for repair, loaner vehicles, a buyback, and have met no results. I no longer want to drive my car, as I do not feel safe, and am saving up for my wedding, so my fiance and I are sharing our other, reliable and safe vehicle, at this time, which has proven difficult. I no longer feel comfortable driving my seven year old little brother around in my car, nor do I feel safe getting behind the wheel. I do not feel comfortable trying to sell my car to another consumer, knowing that it is not safe, and no replacement parts or repair solution is in sight. The dealer estimates January 2017 at best, but claims it's unlikely that takata will respond with parts even by then. We are left with no options except for owning and not driving an unsafe vehicle. The dealer and the manufacturer refuse to take responsibility for the product that they should be able to stand behind. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Received recall notification at the beginning of April. I called both customer service and the auto manufacturer. Their response is that they do not have a timeline for the parts to come in and therefore, it will take time to repair or replace the air bags. Toyota dealt with this problem quickly. Why is it taking Audi so long to repair this defective air bag. What happens if I was to get in an accident and I injured due to this defective air bag and it wasn't replaced asap. Call to Audi customer service, spoke to judith and Audi manufacturer service spoke to adam. Both said that they had no timeline as when they will receive the parts and when they will repair the cars. This is totally unacceptable. The 60 days are long overdue.
