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.

2001 Audi A6 Owner Comments

I have a 2001 Audi A6. The passenger seat behind the driver was on a low heated setting. A blanket was over the top. After warming up the car noticed a burning smell and the seat was on fire. It burned a hole all the way through to the coils and through the blanket. I will be contacting Audi usa about this but feel this is a severe safety issue with the vehicle as my son's car seat is on the other side. So far the dealership will do nothing and the car was out of warranty long ago.
