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.

2010 Audi A6 experienced massive sudden loss of engine coolant. Result was need to immediately stop car and shut down engine. Loss of coolant resulted in hot liquid spraying out of engine and reducing visibility. Required tow truck to get car to dealer for replacement of defective water pump. According to service manager who directed repairs, the original water pump had a plastic housing and these housings have been failing on many 2009-2010 Audi cars. New water pump part has been changed to metal pump housing (reportedly).
