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.

I have already filled the online form about my vehicle but will also send to Audi care wa1dkafp8ca096667 I had low oil pressure warning at 32000 miles and was towed. I was told when I went for the first time for low oil pressure, they thought may be the oil switch was at fault and I had to pay for it with just 32000 miles on it oil pressure low warning came back again with starting the engine on the driveway. Had to tow it back to jack ingram in montgomery and now was told its the seal of the crank shaft at fault. I think its a saftey issue with warning I cant drive warning onstranded on the street. I request you all to look inti oil leak from cramshaft thanks dinesh

Takata recall. I am afraid to drive this vehicle. Something I am paying a lot of hard earned money for may potentially kill me. I can't sell this vehicle without paying a large amount to cover the difference of what I owe on it. How do I get this problem fixed or sell without owing money?

Drive 2012 Audi Q5 2.0T premium plus. I was driving back home and malfunction indicator light (mil) showed up. The engine is making whistling sound. I took my car to Audi dealership and they informed me that the high pressure fuel pump and some other parts would need replacement. I got a letter from Audi about warranty extension for fuel injector to 120K miles. As per the dealership, this is a different issue. When researched online, this is a very known issue and alot of Audi 2.0T engines have come up with this issue. My car just went out of warranty and is at 54K miles, this is upsetting that such a known issue and I've to pay for this.
