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

  • 40,000 miles


I have a 2004 Audi A6 2.7T S-line sedan with 56,000 miles on it. For the past several months it has had a severe shuddering in the steering column as I accelerate mid-throttle, as when I accelerate onto an on-ramp. I have tried to have my local Audi dealer address this (it is a certified vehicle) but they so far have not come across with resolution. I have also contacted the Audi of America customer support folks several times and they say that there is not a problem like this with this car, but they also say that if I use a specific make of Michelin tire, it might alleviate the problem! I'm concerned about the safety of this car-it doesn't always do this, but when it does the steering wheel "shudders", like it vibrates/wobbles and the whole car vibrates. It started at about 40,000 miles and seems to have worsened over time. Is there a common problem with this vehicle? please help if you can!
