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.

allroad 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Audi Allroad. The contact stated that his vehicle has a design flaw. When it rains, water enters the passenger compartment from the passenger side. There is a small drainage hole in the bottom of the vehicle where the battery is located. Debris and water enter this hole and drains the battery. The dealer stated that nothing could be done because the vehicle was too old and had excessive mileage. The Audi manufacturer had the same response. The failure mileage was 60,000. Updated 07/28/09. The consumer stated the drain holes in the battery compartment were blocked. Water flooded the battery compartment then the passenger compartment and shorted out the electrical system causing over $3000 in damage. Updated 07/30/09.
