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

problem #1

Mar 202004

A6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Our new Audi A6 had the P6 P235/R17 installed as original equipment. Within the first 4,000 miles, all under normal driving conditions, a large bulge developed on the sidewall of one of the rear tires. This created a very dangerous driving condition. When we had reported this issue to our dealer, they very rudely disclaimed responsibility and had given us the number for the tire manufacturer. When we had reported this to pirelli Consumer Affairs division, they quickly ascertained (without inspection) that this was caused by a road hazard, and would not be covered under warranty. At this stage we are looking toward our legal options, since both Audi and pirelli are not interested in coming up with a solution short of us buying brand new tires.
