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.

A4 4-cyl

  • 23,500 miles


Driving to work on a country roadway, passed a vehicle and began to pull back into my lane, releasing the gas pedal, but the Audi 2010 A4 continued to accelerate even after braking, speeds in excess of 85-90 mph. Brakes functioned, pulled over, stopped car. Looked down, nothing interfering with the gas pedal. Restarted car, speedometer needle jumped to 7000-8000 RPM, car revved. Needed to get the car to a safe location, proceeded to drive down the road with the brake pedal depressed, brakes began smoking but made it to a MINImart, parked and stopped car. Car towed to dealership, dealership said there was nothing wrong with the car. Contacted Audi of America, they reviewed the records and said that there was nothing wrong with the car. Vehicle accelerated to high rate of speed despite driver's attempts to reduce speed. Have not driven vehicle since this incident on 7/7/11. No prior problems, but since I stopped the vehicle and looked down at the gas pedal, there was nothing in the way which would have caused the vehicle to accelerate. Dealership states no codes were thrown and nothing shows up.
