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.

Wipers do not keep windshield clear in winter snow and ice driving conditions. Wipers freeze up and do not clear windshield, seriously compromising visibility and causing dangerous vehicle operation. Design is proprietary and Audi do not offer winter blades to remedy this situation. Please note, this is for an Audi A4 quattro, not Q5 as your web site only acknowledges the A3 and Q5 as choices for vehicles.
