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 avante wagon automatic transmission - there is a significant"hesitation" on acceleration such that the car does not initially respond when the accelerator is depressed but does so suddenly a short time reslting in a hesitation. I consider this to be a significant safety concern since the acceleration of the car is unpredictable. The car has been taken to two dealers to deal with this problem, both reporting that this is normal for the "fly-by-the-wire" systems which is used in the car and that there is no adjustment or correction for this. I find it to be of concern and a safgety issue that aaudi should deal with before there is a serious accident.
