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.

This morning my son went to start his car and it just clicked. He shut the door and locked it. BIG MISTAKE!!!! The battery is dead so now how in the hell can we get in the car to open the hood to replace the battery!!??? The door locks are recessed so how can a tow truck even life the locks? How can I get into the engine campartment without getting the car doors open to pop the hood? This is really bad that Audi does not have a back up way of getting the hood open.... or.... do they and I just don't know what it is. Also, the service manual is in the fricken car!!!! Does anyone know how to get to the battery without having to get into the car?
