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.

Takata recall the problem with the takata airbags has been absolutely confirmed for years and this is the first notice from Audi in the time we have owned the car (over one year). How is it that they can casually suggest that, "Audi recommends avoiding use of the front passenger seat whenever possible until the the recall repair has been performed.", and state that the use may result, "in serious injury or death to vehicle occupants.", without offering an immediate remedy. Though ten years old, this is our family car and there is no other remedy offered than to stop driving it"? the government has facilitated an agreement regarding emissions with VW/Audi and yet you have done nothing in this case to prevent possible death. When can we expect this recall to be implemented" it has been a long time already and yet they offer no time line to a safe usable vehicle. Please, use your powers to get this resolved.
