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.

2005 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 252007

A6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,500 miles


On 1/25/2007 car was cold in garage. Would not start on first or second attempts. On third attempt the car turned over but the epc light illuminated and the entire vehicle was heavily shaking and rocking back and forth. No power to drive the vehicle. Had it towed to the dealership (schaumburg Audi). Dealer said the computer recorded multiple cylinder misfires but that there was nothing else they could find wrong. Car was kept overnight and returned to me when no further problems could be found and the event could not be replicated. Nothing was actually repaired and no parts replaced.
