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.

The contact owns a 2010 Audi A5. While the vehicle was parked in heavy rain conditions, the inside of the vehicle became flooded. The dealer inspected the vehicle and discovered that the drainage valve failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The VIN was unavailable. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.

Audi A5 - 2010 models. These cars come with faulty lower control arms and bushings which results in shaking in driving from 60mph to 70mph. I just bought a brand new car yesterday to be exact, the entire drive home the car shook violently, this type of shaking can and will cause accidents, a full failure of control arms will result in death. Audi has not conducted a mass recall as of yet, I believe they are waiting for a few deaths and a mass protests and intervention from federal government before doing something.
