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.

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

On 01/09/03 I purchased a 2003 VW Eurovan & on 01/18/09 my engine light came on. On 01/20/03 I was told I had faulty coils. I was told that the two coils that failed were going to be replaced, but with that came a warning that I have a total of 6 coils. When I picked up my partialy fixed van I was told " hopefully we can replace all your coils before this happens to you again." When I contacted VW directly they informed me that this was a large problem they were having company wide & at this time they were only replacing the failed faulity coils. At the dealership when I asked if this could cause engine damage I was told "it could".I was sold a new car without the knowladge of serious faulty problems that VW clearly knew about. I would like my new car to not have any known defects. All 6 coils should be replace, for the safty of my children, my husband, & myself.
