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 Q5 Owner Comments

problem #3

Q5 6-cyl

  • 5,100 miles


My Audi Q5 has barely 5000 miles on the odometer and has been through its first service a week back. This morning while driving to work the coolant light came on and the vehicle had to be towed to the dealer. Was later informed that it was the water pump that was the cause of the problem and I will need to wait for three days while the service centre procures one. Given the increasing occurrence of water pump failure with the Q5, I feel Audi needs to be more proactive in addressing this issue thereby avoiding inconvenience to its customer base.
