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 A5 Owner Comments

problem #1

October 2010 severe wobbling of steering wheel, after numerous complaint with dealer they have to carry out full wheel alignment that took 3 attempts to rectify. This same complaint has now started again although only a pull to the left while driving, this has been investigated by Audi dealer and wheel camber appears to be the problem. The dealer would not rectify fault under warranty as this is according to them normal wear and tear of vehicle, I have done 2.5K miles since all 4 wheels were done and I have not hit or damaged my wheels alignment and Audi will not support me as the driver and will only back their dealership. I do believe my car has a problem as the alignment is out on the N/S front and rear wheel. Has anyone else suffered from this.....I refused to pay them under ransom and I am now seeking a second opinion.
