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.

The coil packs on the engine have failed on me twice. Was going 65 down a major highway when my engine power was reduced to less then half and becoming real rough and real jerky. VW needs to realize that this is also a safety issue as well. Imagine accidentally pulling out in front of oncoming traffic and having more than one coil pack fail and not being able to get out of the way. I would hate to see that happen to even one family.
