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.

Back window both right and left on 2004 convertible new Beetle do not go up. Failure puts car at risk for vandalism and damage to interior due to weather conditions. Cost to repair $900. Can't justify a $900 repair on a car worth $18,000. Many others at the dealership report the same failures.
