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.

2010 Volkswagen GTI Owner Comments

GTI 4-cyl

  • 43,000 miles


I was driving on the interstate at about 60 mph and I heard a loud bang, like a gun shot. I looked around, and looked up, and noticed my sunroof had exploded into a million little pieces, and was slowly breaking back into oncoming traffic, and was falling on me. I went to exit the interstate, and a large chunk (about 9"X9") fell on me and scraped my arm. I have glass in the car, hair and ground into my skin a bit - some of it is very fine and sharp, like sparkly powder. The dealership says it was probably a rock that hit it, but I don't think a rock could have a velocity in the vertical direction at that speed to hit and smash the glass. I'm requesting it be fixed under bumper-to-bumper warranty.
