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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The ABS light goes on and off. It stays on most of the time. Also, had suspension problems. The lower control arm was recalled, and the upper control arm was having same problem. The control arms wore out prematurely. When upper control arms failed vehicle had 70000 miles on it. Vehicle lost control due to the upper control arm failure, and it was a safety concern.

A6 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When applying brakes there is a low screeching noise, this is when vehicle is in a stopping position, and going at low speed, contact dealer and had no response. Accelerator pedal needs to be pushed down between one and two inches to get any response, extreme pressure needed when using horn.
