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: Recall has been in effect since May 27, 2016 and no further updates have been provided by manufacturer, replacement/loaner and compensation requests have been denied, and no date has been provided for repairs. Manufacturer has advised to drive without a passenger "when possible" but I have no idea whether doing so is safe or if I'd be putting the vehicle occupants in significant danger. Manufacturer has been unhelpful and refuses to provide any additional information beyond contents of initial recall notice letter.

My 2008 Audi A6 avant has had an air bag warning light appear 3 times in 2 years. Each time it gives error codes for it's center, rear seat belt. I was told that this means that the restraint may not work effectively in the event of a crash or abrupt stop. It has happened at 12,983 miles, at 29,000 miles and now at 39,000 miles. Nobody should use it until it is fixed. 1st time Audi did gff test steps and cleared code, second time they replaced the seat belt itself. Now they believe it to be an electrical system issue.
