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.

Beetle GLS 4.2L (?)

  • Manual transmission
  • 83,000 miles

The driver's switch for the power window broke (this after my husband repeatedly took car into dealer while under warranty b/c windows kept "falling" out of the frame). The dealer was going to charge us in excess of $200, I believe, to fix. Instead, my husband switched the driver's side wires. Now, I can control my window but can't control the passengers' window w/o reaching across the seat. However, I will gladly reach to save the $200 in repairs! Just switch the driver's side control wires if this happens to you!

About every 6 months a new power window switch has to be installed in the car. The window will open but will not close. In order to close the window, I have to get out of the car and physically pull the window up.
