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.

The contact owns a 2008 Audi Q7. The contact stated that strong fuel fumes entered the vehicle without warning. The dealer stated that the parts and remedy were not provided from the manufacturer for NHTSA campaign number: 16V660000 (fuel system, gasoline). The windows had to be opened because due to the fume odor, which made the contact nauseas. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000.

Strong gasoline smell while driving and after car is parked in garage. Dealership diagnosed as bad fuel injectors, after fuel line was replaced and smell did not go away. Audi-certified mechanic does not believe it is the fuel injectors. The same model within a few years of mine has had a recall for fuel line issues.

Intake manifold flap on passenger not opening fully causing the check engine light to turn on. I checked the web and I there are a lot of complaints about the same problem. I've had BMW, mercedez, Toyota's and a lot more, none of those vehicle gave me problem. Audi is taking care of other models with 2.0 tfsi engine, they extended the emmission warranty to 10 yrs or 100K. Audi should take care of this issue aswell.

I have noticed a fuel smell in my garage and at first I thought it is my mower. The next day it has got stronger and I start getting nausea and headache. I took it to a repair shop and the showed me there is a fuel leak on the tank. They told me it could be the fuel pump. I do not believe it is the fuel pump. It leaks like there is a whole or some thing is broken inside the covered area of the tank where there is no visual access unless it is opened. I think it is a major issue that they have to fix before someone burns alive.
