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.

The actual rear view camera screen lifts out of dash in this car. Shortly after purchaceing my car the entier screen stopped lifing out of the dash there for I have no camera operation. All of the controls of the factory air bag suspension and any ride controls are unusable as you no longer have a screen to view any of the controls/navagation/hands free controls/bluetooth or rear view of the car while operating the car. All you hear is a sound of a gear stripped out clicking and your screen never lifts out of the dash.I feel this is a safety issue only because this is a large car with multiple blind spots espicially if the rear glass has any tint on it. I have done lots of reserch on line and have found hundereds of complaints and every one of them are identical. Every complaint states the is a cheap plastic gear that strips out and Audi wants $1100 dollars to replace the entire system only to replace it with the same plastic piece that originally failed no upgrade or permenate fix for this issue. The dealer ship is aware of this flaw and told me this is a common problum and was able to quote the repair over the phone with out even an inspection. If there was a small child or anything behind this car you would have no idea and back over them/or it only because of the huge blind spot and no camera operation.please look into this safety issue as it was not only in the 2007 S8 it was also in the A8 and any other Audi with a mmi lift screen installed for multiple years.
