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.

My 2003 Audi Tt quattro has an intermittent headlight, have tried numerous times replacing the bulb as well as switch. After looking at numerous posts, it is clear that this is a huge fault by the manufacturer of headlight failure. In my state you get a ticket for a single light out (NY) and this headlight fails intermittently either when at 0mph or 60mph. Huge safety concern especially if driving at night or in the rain, on top of the traffic violations.

The digital instrument panel is failing currently it does not register the proper amount of fuel in the vehicle. This could result in a vehicle failure while driving in traffic causing a dangerous and hazardous situation. The vehicle has been recalled in the united kingdom for a similar failure in the vehicles instrument panel. The NHTSA should investigate this matter. The replacement of the instrument panel is not covered by the warranty and will cost in excess of $900 for the part, plus labor to replace the item on the vehicle. The vehicle has less than 45,000 miles on it. It is also stored in a heated garage in the winter so, elements should not be a factor in the cause of the failure. The failure is most likely due to manufacturing defect and replacement should be covered by the manufacturer.
