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.

2001 Volkswagen Cabrio Owner Comments

Cabrio GTI 2000

Bought car with no CD'S in Changer and Head unit saying no CD Changer fitted, told by seller needed CD'S in magazine to work!! More fool me. I suspected a problem but when I loaded CD'S it worked!! Then it didn't, then it did. Its now hit and miss and after checking I need a new Cd Changer!! Guess the previous owner knew? It works perfect when it finds the magazine and mostly it does not. Worried if I replace it the fault will be in head unit. Decided to replace with after market Head unit Instead. (Waste of a 6 CD System) More annoyed with previous owner than car.
