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 drivers side air bag and harness were replaced in Nov. 2006. The air bag light is now on again and the dealer wants over $100 to check it. After talking to a VW technician, he said that VW had problems with the side air bags and it was dealer discretion if it was to be covered under warranty. Someone help me out here.
