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

The electrical components on my 2001 Cabrio may and have caused a short which sparked under hood causing smoke and possible fire also, the computer over heats causing shorts which made the transmission fail and gauges fail, the us gov. (division) that handles such faults should force Volkswagen to recall every and all cars for repairs! the us owners are paying for Volkswagen mistakes, partially for their decision to have these cars made in Mexico evading tax's and which has made these autos cheap and flawed. These cars are unsafe and the electrical issues are and will in future cost the american public alot of money....... so far: My auto has been at repair shop for over 6 months and has cost me more then what it's worth, hard working people are getting taken advantage of by a poorly built and unsafe product [xxx][xxx] ps even Volkswagen doesn't and can't fix all these items, try taking it to dealer..... you will see information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
