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.

Door hinge suspension this is the 2nd VW Beetle convertible we have owned. 1st was a 2006. Both cars have experienced door hinge issues. My feeling is the doors are too heavy for the hinge suspension. It has happened on driver and passenger side. Noise, then the small pin suspension snaps.
