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.

The contact owns a 2009 Volkswagen Eos. While driving various speeds, the vehicle failed to accelerate when the accelerator pedal was depressed. In addition, the contact noticed an abnormal odor of fuel when driving. The contact mentioned that the electronic power steering, engine, and automatic transmission warning light illuminated. The failure recurred constantly. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed, but the failure was not determined. The throttle body, coil pack, and fuel injector were replaced but the remedy failed. The manufacturer were made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.

I was driving home from baltimore on the freeway going about 70mph and the vehicle started losing speed and nothing I did would get it to go again. I had to pull over put the car in park, shut the car off and then I was able to go again. This happened about 6 more times driving home to pittsburgh. I went to the dealer and they "fixed it". it worked for a short period of time. Then it happened again and they couldn't find anything wrong with it so they put seafoam in my car. It happened several more times and they had my car for months. They think the seafoam hid the problem for almost a year. They replaced fuel injectors and that helped for about 400 miles. Then they replaced the part that is the equivalent of a caarburetor. This fixed it for about 5 months this time. I just made a trip to Chicago and thank god this did not happen there as I would have been killed. Now I am at 85,000 and it just happened on August 6, 2015. Once again VW corporate is not being of much assistance. I was told by VW coporate in February 2015 to dump the car and they would give me $1,000 off a new VW. This is unacceptable. This car is not safe and I am not getting anywhere with either the dealer or VW corporate. I have read other blogs and I know that I am not the only Eos owner having this problem. Will this take GM or Dodge deaths to get someone's attention? I really hope I am not the person killed.

Check engine light came on, when taken to dealership they say I have a faulty intake manifold runner and it needs to be replaced. If not the vehicle may/will stall. This same part was recalled in the 2006-2008 models of this vehicle and several others. Are the 2009 models affected? the vehicle has been maintained all maintenance has been done to manufacturers recommendations.
