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.

There is safety recall-69N1 -takata sdi driver frontal airbag for my vehicle, and when I called dealership, they do not have parts available and nor they have eta. So as it is driver side airbag, we cannot risk our lives by driving that vehicle, so we asked for loaner and Audi dealership said no. So as I cannot drive the vehicle and loaner is not available, so we will have to get rental, which again will cost us, so we need compensation for rental vehicle.
