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.

2007 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #2

Purchased an Audi a 6 2007 4 years ago. It turned itself off in drive mode 2 months after purchase. This has continued sporadically. It happens after driving the car for some time and then coming to a stop. I press on the accelerator to proceed and the car moves forward. By then, I am out in the intersection or in a lane with oncoming traffic. The mil light goes on, indicating the engine is turned off. There is no power steering and no way to move forward. The car's gear selector is still in drive mode. This is very dangerous. Have been to 2 dealers who say they can not find any fault codes so they can't fix it. Audi says without a fault code, they are not responsible. $40,000 for a car that broke 2 months after purchase and Audi is not responsible?
