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.

A bent steering shaft was not known under normal operating conditions. This bent shaft put excessive strain on the power steering pump, which causes failure at speed without any signs of it failing. This prevented the vehicle from being able to easily be turned while in process of turning the wheel allowing the vehicle to continue in a straight line towards oncoming traffic or other stationary objects. This occurred at various speeds and sometimes under braking. These issues would be intermittent and not able to be predicted to prepare and take additional measures. This is known by Audi under technical service bulletin 2036032/2.

I bought car used from an Audi dealer, and months later the car rattled and the whole car was shaking when I turned it on in the morning. I turned it off and on again, this stopped the problem. I thought it was probably the weather of around 53 degrees F. months later it did it again two more times but this time the weather was not cold and I drove an hour earlier. In January of this year, I drove 40 miles and when pulling into my driveway the car turned off on its own. I could not possibly turned it off due to both of my hands were on the steering wheel as I was turning into my driveway. Thanks god I was driving slow because my kids were outside. I checked the key and it was still pushed down. My husband that was also outside noticed what happened, he told me to take the car to the dealer. I had already taken this vehicle for making noise when turning. I took the car to the dealer for the car turning off. Once the dealer was done troubleshooting they say that there's nothing wrong with the car. They could not duplicate the problem. I still have this problem of the engine sometimes shaking the whole car when turning on. And as for my steering I still have the problem, I paid for new tires, alignment, and for tire balance. I really don't have time to keep taking the car to the dealer for them to say that they could not duplicate the problem.
