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.

Driving 55 mph on the express way and the engine shut off completely. The car stalled until it came to a complete stop. The esp light and engine light came on. Restarted the car and problem continue 4 times. After the 4th attempt, I managed to get the car to the side of the road. After waiting several minutes, I restarted the car. The car still feel at times as if its going to stall.

After thirty minutes, ac vent on passenger side starts blowing very hot air. Ten minutes later the ac vent on driver's side does the same. A short while later the two center vents blow hot air. The next day is all starts over. Audi sent out a technical bulletin TB 2013883/1 doing a mea culpa stating it was their fault. When they manufactured it they got metal shavings from the engine into the ac pump. But they are not willing to fix it. I have an estimate for $1300.
