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.

Left headlight dip light comes on when I am driving and hit a highway bump and then the left headlight fails. When I shut the car off and then turn the car back on the light works and the dip warning light goes off.

Q5 6-cyl

  • 13,100 miles
2010 Audi Q5 with camshaft sensor failure resulting in the epc system engaging which puts the vehicle in safe-mode. First attempt at repair fixed nothing. Audi did not allow the dealer to replace the failed sensor on the first repair visit, rather they instead swap like-sensors around, the seeming equivalent of re-arranging a burned out light bulb. It is quite frightening when the epc system deploys, and a more proactive approach from Audi on dealing with this fairly common problem should be mandated.
