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.

Rainwater leaked into the vehicle, collecting in the passenger footwell, shorting out several electrical components. I understand VW/Audi vehicles have a history of this occurring due to firewall/pollen filter/sunroof deficiencies which allow this to happen and they and their dealerships are very uncooperative in even acknowledging such a problem exists in the design of these vehicles. This is an obvious inherent design flaw. Audi is very unfair to consumers to deny such a problem exists and they should be held accountable. At no time during any regular service was it ever suggested that these drain plugs should be cleaned - while the cleaning of the sunroof rails were"?" no owner could possibly be aware that such a disaster awaits them if these inaccessible drain plugs aren't cleaned.
