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.

Volkswagen has defects vie camshaft so which they know of and have a recall for but they are not fixing the problem. Their only concern is to move the failure out of warranty so their customers get stuck with the bill. It is afailure which is directly related to safety of the drivers. Camshaft fails and cause loss of engine power and vacuum for brake operation. They say a electric download will fix a mechanical failure. Impossible !!!!!!!!!
