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 #2

This is my second failure event loosing steering on my 2014 SQ5. Two years ago I posted the 1st event. The dealer ordered new rack and pinion from germany which fixed it....temporarily. Here two years later now January 2016, this 2nd event I was not driving. Upon starting the car the display lit up red "do not drive steering failure". the Audi folks had flatbed truck come. At this moment a 2nd new rack and pinion is coming from germany. In 2015 I rcv'd the recall notice and had Audi do the update firmware fix. Obviously my 1st replaced R&P plus the firmware fix did not eliminate this dangerous failure from re-occurring yet again.

Right after starting the car steering locked, like it's lost power boost, with a message "steering failure".
