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.

Takata recall - clock spring airbag malfunction. My 2009 Cc is not included in the recall however I am experiencing the same issues as the 2010 Cc owners vehicle. The airbag light is on and steering wheel functions are not working. I took my vehicle to the volkswagon dealer and they diagnosed the clock spring issue same issue as the recall in model year 2010. If my vehicle has the same malfunction then it should be covered via the recall. The airbag malfunction is a serious safety issue and Volkswagen should take precautions to prevent harm to owners of their vehicles

Issue happened after incident in August 2011 and progressively became worse. Steering wheel will lose electrical power to controls (I.e. stereo controls) and causes airbag warning light to come on and horn will not function at all. Dealer looked into issue and found that the clockspring needed replacement. Clockspring replaced in steering wheel and airbag issue has been resolved but steering wheel control issue still remains along with not having a working horn. VW usa had no known fix for this issue as al wiring is in working order. Dealership requested vehicle be brought back in for a further look.
