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.

We're replaced oxygen sensors, mass air flow sensors, and various other electronic components associated with the fuel injection and emissions systems a number of times. A few repairs were covered by VW, but only within the first 20,000 miles. Then it was our problem. We've owned seven VW's. This (last) one was purchased new, never abused, and will be our LAST VOLKSWAGEN product, as the quality control and parts quality has gone completely to crap.They just don't build 'em like they used to, indeed!!!
