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.

A6 Leather 30V2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


over the winter in Portland Or we had our low mileage and well cared for A6 fail to start with a dead battery. it always starts and charges fine after jump starting. a few weeks later it happens again. Were at 5 times in 12 months. I replaced the 6+ year old battery last month on advice from my pro mechanic but it happened again today even though I drove the car yesterday. Again nothing was left on. What computers are screwing up causing this key-off load? I haven't looked up service bulletins yet... just starting trouble shooting.

email me @ if you have maint history info. thanks awl. Dave
