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.

Passenger side headlight (please see attached photo "headlight.jpg"): this actually happened for the first time the day we bought the car, right after we pulled out of your lot. We pulled right back in after circling the block, but after leore turned the engine off and on again everything was fine then. I have not found a way to duplicate this. It seems to happen randomly, but usually within the first minute or so of driving. There always seems to but be a bright flash from which one of the lights does not recover. Dashboard message: This one looks like it may be related to the first issue (again, please see attached photo named "message.jpg"): the message reading "front right dipped beam not working!" usually displays within the first few seconds after starting the engine. I have not been able to find a way to duplicate this at will. It also seems to randomly happen, but a lot more often than the failing headlight under issue #1 does. The passenger door power lock seems to work only on and off. All other locks (I'm not positive about the trunk actually) seem to work fine. Alignment: The vehicle pulls to the left on the freeway. I bought a used vehicle from stevens creek volklswagen that was unsafe which was my understanding it was safe. I have attempted to get it resolved through the dealership and manufacturer but majority of the above listed items in first paragraph (I.e., tire pressure sensor, speed, headlight) are still unresolved.
