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.

Vehicle has been repaired by Audi for a similar issue. Reporting again, because dealer completely replaced Audi "electromechanical steering unit". vehicle steering locked up hard, requiring very large amount of force to turn even a few degrees. Message on a display "steering is defective". vehicle has been repaired by Audi for a similar issue just on 23 Oct 2013. Reporting again as a new issue, because dealer has completely replaced Audi "electromechanical steering unit" and other parts.
