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.

With the elec stability control being intermittent this is being caused by the ABS module going bad/intermittent the brake pedal pressure changes. I have experienced this with my 2002 Ram 1500 (4X4) as well. This could be a problem in all cars and trucks. The cost the fix for an Audi is around $2500 and my Ram was $1300.

The first throttle valve malfunction happened on July 2013. Cost to repair $1557.95 part cost $878 mileage 66784 the second malfunction happened on Oct. 14, 2014 to repair $1200 part cost $913, mileage 69202 what happens here is the engine shuts down. There could have been E major accident if she was rear ended. I called Audi to tell them the part was defective, but they would not listen. That is why I think there should be a recall, to send them a message.
