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.

problem #1

Dec 112003

S4 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,000 miles
I purchased my audo S4 avant new on Nov. 10, 2001. It has 26,000 miles on it. There have been at least 6 repairs performed to correct brake pulsation or vibration. Pads and/or front and/or rear rotors have been replaced. The car leaves the dealership service facility operating normally, but within a few thousand miles the condition returns. Is there a real fix for this?
