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.

2009 Audi Q7 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 242011

Q7 6-cyl

  • 25,037 miles


We took our 2009 Audi Q7 in to change the headlamp. While there, audit informed us that the brakes needed to be replaced. We were surprised given that the vehicle had only 25,037 miles on it. Audi informed us that this is a problem they have been having with the Q7 and that the brakes are having a shorter useful life than expected. We did not have any injuries, but we were charged $1,448.84 for an issue that seems like it should be Audi's problem. But more importantly, we are concerned about others driving Q7's who may not realize that the brakes could fail around 25,000 miles.
