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.

2003 Volkswagen Beetle Owner Comments

I have a 2003 conv/new Beetle 1.8T engine 69,200 mi. It's had regular oil changes, garaged kept and low mileage less than 10,000 mil per yr. Per the VW service dept it has sludge build up. To my understanding other 2003 new Beetle owners have had the same problem. Very costly to fix. Per VW it's out of warranty and it's nothing they can do.
