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.

Audi Tt 2002 dash pod recalled in ireland and britain. Interference and erratic performance with instrument gauges and lights. I am having same problem and vehicle only has 30K miles. Can result in unexpected shut down on highway. Dealer says car computer does not indicate any problems and customer, me, ends up paying for each malfunctioning component as just "normal wear and tear".

2002 Audi Tt developed numerous mechanical problems. The windows made noise when being rolled downs, the dealer replaced the regulator. The turn signal relay was defective which caused the flasher relay to make noise. The component was replaced twice. The left front maker light bulb blew. The brake light illuminated on the dash. The dealer determined that the front pads and rear rotors needed to be replaced. A few day later the brake light illuminated again. This time the dealer replaced the ABS unit. While driving the check engine illuminated. The dealer replaced the coolant temp sensor. Ignition coils failed twice causing the check engine light to illuminate. The radio lost power. The check engine light illuminated again but this time the dealer replaced the mass air flow sensor. The horn stopped working. The rear differential unit was replaced. Breather hose split. Right tie rod end became worn and caused noise. The dealer found loose subframe bolts during inspection which caused the subframe to move while driving over bumps and while braking.
