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.

TL. hi, this morning I was involved in an accident when my 2008 Audi A8L suddenly accelerated out of control as I was entering a parking garage. Thankfully it appears no one was injured. I am extremely disturbed by this incident. I have also contacted Audi usa. Is thus a known problem with this car? please let me know what I should do. I don't want this to happen to anyone else and I do not know if I should escalate this issue somewhere else. I am also concerned about driving it again after it is repaired. I always liked the car and if I don't drive it again I could not in good conscious sell it to someone else. Please let me know anything that could help me with this situation. Thanks bob (contact wanted this complainted copy and pasted into the complaint form)
