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.

After major service check started smelling gas perceded with headaches and falling asleep driving, called service department with complaint took car back to dealer was told fuel was leaking, fuel filter cracked, asked why wasn't it check during service was told it wasn't part of service, asked was my car driveable" response no! checking windshield fluid is more important than checking the fuel filter? ?" the heavy gas smell was when driving and when car turned off! this could have resulted in death/serious injury if there was an accident due to gas leaking! if this was part of the major service check I wouldn't have gotten sick or almost die along with paying an additional $657 on top of 500 plus prior for service. This could have been avoided and checking the fuel filters needs to be part of all services which will save the next person's life!

According to Audi atlanta the high pressure fuel pump (hpfp) exploded. This small but contained explosion was centered within the high pressure fuel pump itself but then sent small metal fragments thorough the fuel system from diesel fuel tank through the injectors. Due to this 10K+ in parts and 4K+ in labor was required to flush the system, replace almost all of the parts in order to repair the damage.
