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.

2013 Audi A7 Owner Comments

While rolling to a stop at a left hand turn signal automatic gas saver feature turned vehicle off or defaulted prior to the vehicle coming to a complete halt. Automatic gas saver feature turns engine off at a stop to save idling emissions and fuel consumption. Vehicle froze, brakes were hard, steering locked and car very slowly rolled into vehicle in front. Air bags did not deploy possibly because vehicle was completely off. This happened three times in 22,000 miles only when the automatic gas saver feature is on. The first time no fault message/code was noted due to panic. The second and third times a fault code/message displayed on the dash stating "key not recognized". this could or could not be related. Batteries in key fob are strong/functional.
