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.

Driving the car the engine just quit, checked alternator, fuel lines, starter, battery, glow plugs (diesel) everything checked out fine with. Please if you had a similar problem let us know. We are running out of ideas and the book for volkswagen repairs (that we ordered online because you can't get any hard copies expect for a disk) has not been helpful with troubleshooting this problem. The car is difficult to get to any part. I love my car and just want it running again because it's great on gas. Thanks
