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.

O-ring failure in 2012 A6 3.0 caused the transmission to internally leak fluid causing the electonic system to go bad. All of the following lights came on when issue started. Check engine light, gearbox, mil trac control, mil epc, light airbag mil hi-speed cooling fan mil tire pressure warning light the transmission would not shift, major lack of power to engine. Parking brake would also activate by itself. Instrument panel light up like a X-mas, when I pulled over the car shut off and would not turn back on.
