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.

2014 Audi Q5 Owner Comments

Q5 4-cyl

This is brand new Audi Q5 I purchased roughly a month earlier. While driving on the freeway, multiple cars began honking and waving at us. I pulled off the freeway and was notified that black some was appearing from the rear of the vehicle. I notified the manufacturer of the issue and they towed the car to the nearest dealership for service. The service crew did confirm an issue with the engine. A weep hole was found on side of transmissions that was leaking oil which caused black smoke to appear from the engine. The service team ended up replacing the entire transmission.
