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.

2010 Audi S5 Owner Comments

problem #1

S5 6-cyl

2010 Audi S5 overheated on Dec. 6, 2010 in cold weather (20 degrees) while driving on highway. Audi reported a water pump crack and ordered the part. Same problem occurred on Dec. 31, 2010, rendering car disabled. Audi reported that thermostat replaced. I've seen numerous other complains on Audi S4 vehicles and defect in water seal and/or pump, yet Audi had done nothing to warn the public or recall vehicles to correct the problem. NHTSA should investigate before someone gets seriously hurt or killed, whether by the car break down or getting stranded somewhere out of cell phone range in cold weather.
