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

2002 Audi A6 has a problem with interior flooding due to rainy weather and it causes the transmission module to short out. The consumer stated during heavy rain, the water from the windshield runoff does not drain fast enough through the drain hole, which is located under the battery. The drain is well hidden and can not be inspected visually or cleaned easily. The water backs up into the passenger compartment through the fresh air intake. The transmission module which is located directly under the passengers feet had to be replaced twice, because of the flooding problem. The mechanic stated he took out the rubber grommet from the drain therefore making the drain opening much larger to alleviate any future problem.
