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.

2004 Audi TT Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 092010

TT Quattro

  • 45,000 miles


The car started with a faulty gas gauge and then other electrical indicating a bad instrument panel cluster, which a lawsuit was filed and settled regarding this part. I bought the car used and was unaware of the class-action suite and expiration was July 2010 and it was Dec 2010 and I had owned the car since Jan 2010. I had no idea of the issue with instrument cluster during the remaining warranty period. Now I must pay 1000 to fix that.

The day before my appointment for that issue, the car went crazy and was stuck in a gear after jerking while driving. The instrument panel was flashing, they tell me it went into LIMP mode due to transmission failure. So even though I have only 45K mileage my transmission needs replacing. 7500 repair. Not a great lifespan on that tranny. Ridiculous. They are offering no compensation so far for either.
