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.

2002 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #1

I purchased a 2002 Audi A6 as our "family car." During the purchase process I inquired about the safety regulations in regards to the side airbags (rear seat) and child safety seats. I was told that as long as they were postioned properly that there was no danger to a child in a properly installed seat. Not long after recieving the vehicle, we found out the "family" was imminent. During my research into what child safety seat to purchase, I was shocked to find out that the dealership provided me with inaccurate information. I also found out that you are not supposed to place a rear-facing car seat in front of a fold down arm rest. This basically ruled out my entire back seat!! I began to work with Audi to solve the problem. I have spoken with the general manager, service manager and anyone who would listen. I realized just how ignorant they are on the subject and that I was sold this vehicle (with the upgrades/airbags) under false pretenses and inaccurate info from those who are supposed to know their cars. I have worked with the local fire department authorized to check the installation of car seats and we have found a solution. But I am not happy with the fact I must "find a solution" to a problem that should have never occured. Of course Audi will do anything I am willing to pay for, yet I don't feel I should be required to pay for their inaccurate information. They will not disable my rear airbags either! what course of action do you recommend" is there a way to have them disable my airbags? is there some way that I can make Audi take responsibilty for the knowledge, or lack there of with their employees"
