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.

Takata recall I received a notice in February 2016 regarding the recall but as of today October 21 I still have not received the repair notice. I have called numerous Audi dealers as well as the Audi worldwide number who told me they do not have parts and are waiting. I asked when they expect to get parts and they did not know at all. I contacted NHTSA and I was told they did not know when parts would be received by Audi neither. All they could tell me was living in ca I was in zone B and the next on this list after the higher priority high humidity areas. Due to the sheer number of recalls this could mean we may not get parts for years if something isn't done to improve production frequency, produce high quality airbags and make it available to the customers who have a recall notice. I am concerned driving the car with the recall notice as well as the deaths and issues regarding the airbag. We need quality parts to be allocated to Audi in ca as soon as possible. What is the plan to have more airbag parts available as soon as possible for consumers such as myself who has an Audi 2010 A5 to protect my safety while continuing to drive the vehicle?
