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.

2012 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I bought a used 2012 Eos in September of 2015. Since owning the car, I have had to replace all 4 ignition coils twice, in less than a year of owning this car. The first time happened 3 weeks after I bought the car. The vehicle is in motion, then fails to accelerate. It does not transition from the lower gears to the higher gears smoothly and I am constantly in fear of getting stranded.
