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.

2008 Audi A8 Owner Comments

A8 8-cyl

  • 55,118 miles


The 2008 Audi A8L was involved in a rolling rear-end collision while starting to move at a stop sign. Velocity was less than 5 mph. Minor collision with no deployment of airbags and no damage to the car ahead. The A8L drove normally after the collision. Inspection at the body shop revealed stress fracture and bending of the frame. Car was declared a total loss. It is unacceptable that a full size premium sedan should suffer catastrophic failure of the frame at a low speed collision. A high speed collision would have provided no protection to the occupants of the vehicle. Multiple contacts made with Audi usa via ups letter, email, telephone, twitter and facebook. Audi usa refuses to provide any crash test data on the A8 which is very concerning. I request the NHTSA to investigate if this car is safe.
