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.

TT 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Instrument cluster failure for 2nd time. Nothing works in dash and Audi will not cover. No odometer, tach, fuel gauge, oil sensors, nothing. Left wife stranded because it showed a half tank of gas when it was actually empty. She had to walk 2 miles to get home. What if she had been raped, killed, etc. There are over 2600 complaints on audiforum where people have replaced up to 3 clusters for the same reason.
