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

Feb 152010

TT 4-cyl

  • 62,456 miles


Audi Tt, 2001, roadster. The glove box lock failed without reason. This failure does not allow the passenger side air bag to be disconnected for children as required by law. My car is not the only one with this defect. It is a design failure creating a safety hazard to small passengers. This failure is common to Audi Tt 2000 thru 2005. Needs to be corrected via a recall, an improved glove box lock system. Repairing with the same system only leads to recurrent failures.

My 2001 Audi Tt roadsters airbag did not deploy during a direct frontal collision. The collision force was enough to shear the aluminum bumper reinforcement in the middle as well as wrap the radiator around the front of the engine. The vehicle is still in for repairs which now total over $13,000. In early 2003 I took my car to the dealer to investigate the airbag warning light. On the third (3rd) visit they replaced the airbag control module. I am concerned the airbag did not deploy because of a system failure?
