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.

2004 Audi A6 Owner Comments

A6 6-cyl

Significant gas leak caused by broken gas "in tank sending units" housing and seal. Gas will leak and fill the inside of the car with fums as well as under the car. Replacement required buying a revised design sending units that include all three sending units. The price is high ~$500 and the consequences very dangerous. My car is: 2004 Audi A6 [xxx] 2004 A6Q 2.7T information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Car's engine stopped while at a red light. Would not start after failure. Ultimately, cause was determined to be a failed fuel pump. I saw that there was a recall on the fuel pump for 2003 A6 models including 3L vehicles, but not for 2004 models.]
