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 #69M9, NHTSA #16V078 - my local deal advised me they still do not have the parts to fix for this problem. My vehicle is identified as being in your zone "a" (high priority for repair). This repair is a critical safety issue and needs to be corrected asap. When can I expect my vehicle will be repaired" do I need to take legal action to get VW to resolve this critical safety problem"

I'm really disappointed, angry, especially that I need this car for my work... I still left the car there in order for them check what needs to be fixed and of course they said I have to pay for it... what customer service is this "??"!!!

Takata air bag recall. I live in Florida and it has been reported that states with high humidly and hotter temperatures can cause the air bags to implode. Based on the aforementioned as well as the actual recall I would like to know when this will be rectified. Many of my friends have had their vehicles recall for airbags repaired or at least provided a rental car until a fix is available. VW has offered me nothing.

Takata recall - today after endless waiting for the dealer to be able to repair the airbags in our 2011 VW Cc my wife and I decided to trade this car in as we felt the risk for airbag related injuries in the event of a deployment were not worth keeping the car. We were shocked to find that dealerships will not even take this car in on trade due to the open recall without remedy. We feel we are now forced to drive a vehicle with a known safety defect that increases our chance of injury and/or death in the event of an airbag deployment. I asked a local VW dealer to buy the car but their offer was far below fair value because they stated the car would have to sit until they could fix the issue. They offer no buy back program that is fair to the consumer or loaner car until this could be resolved. Again resulting is my family being forced to drive a vehicle with a known safety issue. I am shocked by this being allowed. I spoke with VW customer service center who also offered no timeframe or options for me and my family. I fault not only takata for not supplying the replacement parts in a timely manner but also Volkswagen for not offering any viable options for me to make sure my family is traveling in a safe vehicle. Please put pressure of both takata and the manufactures to remedy this situation quickly so we can either get our vehicle repaired or trade it in for a vehicle that is safe to drive.

While driving my steering wheel controls stopped functioning to include my horn, airbag, esp, and traction control. After researching the web I found this is a common issue on all VW models and occurs around 40,000 miles. Apparently the VW clockspring in the steering column assembly has a design flaw, and there is no recall at this time.
