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.

My 2024 A4's 8 speed automatic will not always shift into 8th gear. I've went 18 miles before it finally shifted into high gear. I was even going down a long hill at 60 mph and it would not shift into high gear. This seems to happen more when the transmission is cold. You can see what gear its in by shifting the gear lever over into manual mode. I also noticed it will shift into high gear faster if you let up on the gas pedal after you reach 50 or more mph. My car has the drive select option ( comfort, auto, and dynamic modes) it doesn't matter which mode its in, I still have the problem. I noticed this last year and it is still happening.
