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.

2014 Volkswagen Eos Owner Comments

problem #1

Eos 4-cyl

While driving at approx. 30 mph <1 mile from home the transmission suddenly downshifted into first gear, and my wife was thrown into the steering wheel as the seatbelt did not catch. The car was driven home at 10 mph and parked. I drove it around the block approx. 30 minutes later and experienced the same thing from 25 mph on a neighborhood street. Again, the seatbelt did not restrain me when the car suddenly downshifted. In both cases, the check engine light illuminated, and the transmission malfunction indicator came on. Had this occurred at highway speed the results could have been catastrophic! the sudden downshift would no doubt have caused the car to become extremely difficult to control and any vehicles nearby could easily have created a multi-vehicle accident.
