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.

2011 Volkswagen CC Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 192013

CC 4-cyl

  • 21,000 miles


Complete failure of the brakes. Tried to stop at 90 degree turn and pedal went within two inches of the floor. Car had almost no brakes. Went off the road but was able to keep it out of 6 foot ditch. Car was towed to dealer and I was told that a failure in the vacuum pump caused the problem. This failure was caused by a broken part inside. No warning lights came on. No warning of failure whatsoever. VW treated it like it was the same as a flat tire. I felt it was a safety issue and asked to be removed from the remainder of the lease. I was told they don't do that. I traded the car for another vehicle as I felt the VW Cc was completely unsafe.
