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.

2006 Volkswagen GTI Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 212010

GTI 4-cyl

  • 80,050 miles


Owner of a 2006 VW Gti, threw engine code for known tsb regarding cam follower and cam shaft wear at the high pressure fuel pump. Mechanic inspected site and discovered that cam shaft wear/ damage was extreme and would require replacement of high pressure fuel pump, cam shaft, and cam follower all outside of warranty. This is a known issue and should have some extension on factory warranties from VW of America instead of expecting owners to pony up $1600-2400 in repair costs when it inevitably fails. For note of known issue, see VW tsb #2013147/8.
