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.

I purchased this car new from a dealership in Oct 2014 and after several months I was parked with the engine turned off when another vehicle started to back into my parked car. I attempted to blow my horn as a warning when I discovered that the horn will not blow (sound) if the engine is not turned on! this is clearly a safety issue. When I asked the dealership they described this as "a feature' of the Audi. I asked if they could wire my horn so it would blow when the engine was shut down and they said the wiring was too complex to make that change! this is clearly a safety issue an if my car is stalled I will not be able to blow my horn, or get attention for help or warnings.
