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.

2009 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

problem #1

May 112016

Upon closing convertible top while stationary on the shoulder of a divided roadway, driver's window jammed halfway and became inoperable. VW dealer and VW regional office confirmed that this was a known manufacturing defect in window regulators, affecting ability to see properly out of vehicle. VW personnel said they had actually extended a warranty because of this known defect -- providing 100,000 miles of coverage. However, upon further research, they stated that the extended warranty had expired in 2014 and would no longer be honored despite their acknowledgment that this is a known safety issue caused by a manufacturing defect. This forced me to have the defect repaired at extremely high cost and my own expense. The invoice is attached, and I have kept the ruined parts for further documentation if needed.
