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 2010 Volkswagen Eos. While attempting to turn on the engine, the key failed to start the vehicle. The vehicle had to be towed to the local mechanic who stated that the timing chain fractured and that there was no compression. The mechanic diagnosed that the timing chain, valves, and engine needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted. The approximate failure mileage was 61,000.

I first notice this problem while on the highway at a speed of 65mph. The engine would stall out for a couple of seconds and then work just fine. The epc and service engine light would come on and off during these stall out periods. This would happen off and on for the next several months. Sometimes when I started the car the lights would come on and sometimes they would not. Finally in November 2013 the lights stayed on all the time. I took it to be serviced and they said it was the emission sensor. I had the part 06H127025N put on the car and my troubles stopped. Have not had any problem since. It cost me $453.55 to have it repaired. I applied for the recall but they stated it was not that part that was defective. Well that part was defected because I had to have it replaced.

The contact owns a 2010 Volkswagen Eos. While driving at approximately 50 mph, the contact noticed a rumbling noise and a speed warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for a diagnostic test. The technician stated that a piece of metal under the hood became loose and was causing the noise. The failure continued after the removal of the metal. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer. The technicians replaced a part in the transmission, but the contact was not aware of which part was replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 11,000. Updated 06/05/12 the dealer stated the flywheel was defective.
