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.

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.
