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.

The head light would work sometimes and others it would not took vehicle the dealer was told must remove bumper and replace head lamp assembly complete the cost would be around $ 800.00after researching specific problem head lamp was replaceable without bumper removal and without headlamp assembly replacement cost $100 price of bulb. Audi of America should be able to troubleshoot this problem very easy and they are purposely trying to rip the customer off. Not to mention the danger a intermittent head light posses on the road dip head light error.

My wife and child were driving through the desert in Arizona when our Audi's driver-side xenon headlight failed. Then again 2 months later, driving with my wife and child through California the passenger-side headlight failed. Both times I was told it was the bulb. But we couldn't simply buy a new bulb. Audi needs to order it and take off the bumper to replace them. About a month later, driving through the Arizona desert with my family, the driver-side light went out again. This time Audi service said they need to replace the igniter for the xenon lamp. This all happened within 5 months time. I'd only owned the vehicle about 2 years. When these lights fail, I have to use fog lamps or high beams to have at least 2 lights working at once.
