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.

problem #1

Feb 012006

Eurovan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 102,500 miles
Bought a used 2002 Eurovan with seat warmer in Jan 2006. Seat warmers worked initially, but on passenger side it overheated and melted through the factory synthetic cloth seat cover causing about a 1 inch charred black spot as well as other discoloration nearby. Wife was sitting in the seat and noticed the extremely hot spot and turned it off before it did more damage or injury. I am making this complaint after finding others have had the seat warmer problems on their VW models, documented on a technical service bulletin on for 2002-2003 VW jettas and internet sites.
