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 #1

Mar 152011


  • 23,600 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Audi Q5. The contact stated that while driving in inclement weather, the windshield wipers almost fractured from the vehicle. In addition, he stated that the vehicle went through a car wash and the wipers completely fractured from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who recommended hand washing the vehicle since the car wash brushes would pull the wipers from the vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who concluded that the automatic rain sensor was turned on which caused the wipers to activate. They did not offer any assistance since they stated that they were not responsible for the failure. The VIN was not available and the vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 23,600.
