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.

Still driving a car with a hazardous air bag issue. Why hasn't Audi been required to provide a rental until a fix is available? this should have been resolved months ago.

We received a notice from Audi in April that our vehicle was recalled due to faulty air bags. After further investigation, we learned that the recall was actually announced on February 10, 2016. As of today, September 19, 2016 no remedy had been provided by Audi. When we discussed options with the dealership where we bought the vehicle, Audi boulder, they described the car as a "death trap". their only solution was for us to buy a new car from them. We do not feel safe driving this car until the situation is resolved and will be exploring all options to get this matter resolved.
