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

problem #1

Oct 252009


  • 70,000 miles


Function of turn signals and hazard lights on my 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio has been degrading over time. Both systems are now completely inoperable. There is an active VW recall (NHTSA campaign number 04V584000) for this problem on 2000-2002 golf, gti, beetle and jetta (but no current recall for the Cabrio). I am requesting that the recall be expanded to include Cabrio models. This is a very dangerous problem that is clearly widespread on 2000-2002 VW vehicles of all models.
