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

I am the owner of a 2002 Audi A6 4.2. this is the second exact make and model that I have owned. My complaint is two fold. First and foremost, this particular Audi has no rear brake pad wear sensor. Both vehicles I owned had rear brake failure. The second vechicle I had the idea to continously check the rear brakes. I feel that the ntsha should look in to Audi and the lack of a brake failure waring system. Secondly, the first failure I have was completely covered by warranty. The current car was not covered. Audi has unilaterally chaged ther warranty policy. The have decided no long to warranty wearable parts. For the record the warrant stated that wearable brake parts are covered.
