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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Consumer Reports said the 2012-14 Q5 ranks "very good" for reliability, and so far our numbers show it's hard to argue with that. Just know that you might have a tough time keeping the car straight on the highway.

This is a continuing problem when it rains. The intermittent setting on the windshield wipers is ineffective and I believe dangerous as visibility is significantly impaired. During moderate rainy periods, the interval, which is supposed to be sensed by devices in the windshield responds erratically, with intervals varying from over 30 seconds to about 2-3 seconds and then intervals in-between. This is particularly challenging when passing trucks on limited access highways where the passing time can be extended by traffic. Requests for repair of this erratic operation have been made, but without resolution of the problem. I have been to the dealer twice and no resolution.
