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.

I have a 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio, which VW does not make anymore, and this is probably why. The car is always being fixed. One major issue I have had to replace three front axles in this car. 3/27/07 karl's custom VW; 6/28/08 big O tires; and now, 11/16/2010 I am told by sundevil auto engine and transmission mounts are sagging causing axles to bind, the car needs 4 transmission mounts and 2 axles. VW parts are obviously inferior. I thought VW vehicles were suppose to last over 200,000 miles. What can you do for me? I am unemployed and cannot afford this $1100 repair, but I need my vehicle. With each time I've had this fixed, I was told that the vehicle was unsafe to drive.
