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.

Vehicle has no power from stopped position when on a hill. Vehicle eventually has power after 5-6 seconds. Brakes must be applied and then car surges forward. Vehicles response on level ground varies from non-responsive to irregular to full power. Dealer provided 3 page document entitled "momentary delay with dsg gearbox" outlining steps to take but will not take any corrective action with the vehicle.
