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 #1

Sep 302004

TT 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 36,000 miles
Oil consumption of vehicle is very high. For the first 30000 miles oil consumption was normal. Now the vehicle runs low on oil every 3000 miles. Advised by Audi that it is normal for the vehichle to burn 1 quart every 1000 miles, but as stated earlier, this did not happen for the first 30000 miles. Also advised by Audi to keep a quart of oil in my trunk. Nothing was done to correct the issue.
