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.

The trunk release button does not always work. The driver's window sometimes does not close up when door is closed thereby causing the dashboard to show that the door is open and beeping occurs. I also had to have the release for the gas cap disconnected due to not being able to release gas cap.

The passenger side head lamp flickers and turns off while driving. The head lights must be turned off and back on to temporarily correct the issue. This happens multiple times a day.

I have a 2005 Audi Tt quattro roadster, purchased new in 2005. Have had dashboard instrument cluster failure - twice - in 2 years! fuel gauge fluctuations, coolant sensor malfunction (had to replace coolant sensor to the tune of over $400! just two months ago), radio turns itself on after I've exited the vehicle, etc. First time instrument cluster replaced under warranty. Car now has 50,000 miles and out of warranty. Additionally, intermittent headlight failure. Idiot light comes on, left front headlight out. Turn off lights, 5 - 10 seconds, turn back on, everything is fine. This also happened about 2 years ago, but on the passenger side. Both times, shop replaced headlight. Now new wrinkle - when shifting gears (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and occasionally 5th) up, RPM's rev, engine revs and it seems to whir before catching gears. Only when shifting up, never down. What's up" is all this an inherent electrical issue"
