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.

2007 Volkswagen GTI Owner Comments

problem #2

GTI 4-cyl

  • 48,003 miles


While approaching a stop light the vehicle shut off with no advance notice of any problems. The battery light came on as the vehicle was shutting off. The vehicle would not immediately restart. After six tries, in morning rush hour traffic, the vehicle finally restarted. Several vehicles had to swerve around me to keep from running in the rear of the vehicle. At least one othe incident has happened since then with the engine light coming on.

  • 12,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Volkswagen Gti. Sporadically, the air bag and engine warning lights illuminated on the instrument control panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on ten occasions and they replaced the intake manifold sensors, the rear seal in the trunk, the sun roof assembly, and the seat belt position sensor. Immediately after the repairs were made, the failures recurred. The contact is in the process of notifying the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 12,000 and current mileage was 34,000.
