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.

1998 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #2

A6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The throttle sticks in cold weather causig the Audi A6 wehicle to accelerate on its own without pressing the gas. This has happenned to me several times this winter and last winter. I reported this last year with no satisfaction. It is a dangerous situation and Audi should be held accountable. I have contacted them several times, but they continue to ignore the problem. I know of at least twenty other vehicles of this make with the same problem.
