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-makes noise when suspension is moving, so we inspected it and found out on all front upper control arms, the bushings are cracked.if not replaced it will brake, which can cause lost of control and accident.

New car purchase 2009, wheel shimmy noticed in first few days. I asked two other people to drive the car and no one ever felt the shake. I decided to wait until the first check in at 5K, of course the shimmy was more noticeable. The diagnosis is the control arms are faulty and redesigned parts are due to be installed w/in the week. I am not certain how dangerous a faulty control arm is, but I've been pretty disappointed that the car was not perfect.
