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.

On 02/21/09 I purchase a 2002 Audi A6 3.0 in frederick, Maryland for the amount of $5,808. I drove back the vehicle to selinsgrove, pa I almost did not make it. I noticed a lots of white smoke coming from the exhaust system and the car was shaken really hard. I pulled over cause the check engine light came on. Then I has to get out of the road 11/15 as soon as possible so I only could drive 40 miles per hour or the car will shake more. I purchased the vehicle with a personal check. I want this vehicle back to the dealer as soon as possible. I do not want it. Can I cancel the check? I have a senior bank account and I wrote the check for $5,808 to South street auto sales in frederick, Maryland. I will write a review online to consumers about the bad business of this dealership.
