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.

2003 Audi A6 Owner Comments

A6 8-cyl

I have 2003 Audi A6 quattro 4.2 L. I had in shop for rear brakes and mechanic noted fuel leaking/dripping from front drivers side of plastic fuel tank. I did internet search and found recall campaign 11V267000 and many complaints regarding similar leaks. I verified manufacture date 4/3/(2002 or 2003?) from vehicle which falls in window covered by recall of units manufactured between June 19, 2001 through June 8, 2004. I contacted Audi America and eventually spoke with xxxx at [xxx]. she assured me that my car was either not subject to the recall or had been fixed. I told her I was the owner of the car at the time of the recall ( May 2011) and my car had not been fixed. She robotically repeated that my car had either been fixed or not part of the recall. I asked her to verify that it had been fixed and she said they have no records to show that. She said I could contact the dealer that originally sold the car. I said why would a dealer in Wisconsin who sold the car in 2003 have any records regarding a recall issued in 20011 when I owned the car? she was silent. I asked for a list of all vins in the recall. She said she could not give me that. She agreed to send me a "range" of affected VIN's. she said they might be able to help me out but I need to have and evaluation done at my expense at an Audi dealer to determine what is wrong. I said I know what is wring, it is leaking gas from the rollover valve connection on the tank and reported all over the internet in Audi forums etc. I have made an appointment with Audi for 31 October min 1 hr labor at $110/hr to evaluate my leak. This recall needs to be enforced and Audi needs to be held accountable for their evasive responses. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
