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 paid for the car but never enjoyed it, and no one can fix it even the dealership is not willing to fix, other than to tell me to pay for a new transmission when it is only part of transmission component, by the way these VW they say they were designed to be able to replace only defective component in transmission, not the whole transmission.
