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.

2001 Audi S4 drivers seat shifts while driving. First incident was repaired by dealer by replacing either seat frame or seat rails. Same failure resurfaced within one year. Shift is intermittant and and unpredictable. Causes distraction and changes body position while moving.

Driver's seat rock back and forth when braking or accelerating. Seat frame has already been replaced twice and it started rocking again. Driver looses concentration by the sudden jolt of the forward movement of the seat when braking or rearward movement on acceleration.
