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.

I can not find the complaint where I already described a dangerous event which caused the engine to race, buck, lurch the car forward at an intersection, but please cross reference this information with the VIN number of the previous complaint. I have now provided more info about previous electrical and mechanical failures in this car. We believe it is unsafe to drive, a danger to us and the public at large. We want VW to take this car out of service and provide a replacement vehicle. Thank you for investigating. The car is presently in our possession and they have been unable to diagnose or fix the engine racing problem and electrical problems have plagued the car from the beginning!
