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.

2011 Audi Q5 Owner Comments

Q5 4-cyl

  • 42,657 miles


My car (2011 Audi Q5) engine abruptly shut down at low speed twice on the same day, once at a stop sign and second time while backing out of the garage. About 2 weeks ago, the car stopped while trying to pull out of a parking lot at speed of about 10 mph or less. Fuel tank was more than half full and battery is good too. Car is less than 3 years old with service date starting May 2011. Vagcom analysis when connecting the car obdi port to my laptop indicates fault codes 4732, 4735 among several others relating to misfiring cylinders and faults in the fuel pump circuit/electronics. A cursory search on the internet indicates several such incidents with many other car owners where the car had to be towed to the dealership service department to get it fixed. This is a dangerous situation in which car can come to stop in the middle of the road and I hope Audi takes leadership in proactively solving this problem before a serious accident/injury happens to someone.
