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.

My wife was sitting in her vehicle at work when a dump truck was backing up towards her vehicle. She tried to alert the truck driver using the horn. The horn did not make a sound. The key was not in the ignition. After contacting VW dealer about the horn I was told that the key has to be in the ignition to power the horn. I find this to be a safety issue. I also asked if the air bag would function under the same condition and I was told probably not. I could think of a scenario where this could also be a safety issue. It seems to me that an engineering solution needs to be updated for a passive situation such as in my wives case.
