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 purchased a new 2010 voksawagen Gti in the beginning of November 2009.only a few days after I took delivery of it I started having issues with the braking system.I was driving home going the speed limit around a long turn that I have been driving for 7 years now and all of a sudden the car made a feeling like I had ran over something big or had a flat tire, I was not pressing on the brakes or hard on the gas, I was just driving normally.I pulled over and I could not find any damage to the car or a flat tire.I got back in the car and went back to the turn and there was nothing in the road and it was completely dry that night to.it felt like a grinding crunchy feeling and sounded like a flat tire grinding on the pavement or something crunchy, it also slowed the car down a little bit.I took it in to the dealership and they had it for a week and when I picked it up they said they could not find a problem.I drove the car home and a day later it did the same exact thing, a few days after that I was getting off the interstate I went to press on the brakes and my brake pedal was solid so I had to downshift to slow down, having no brakes is very scary, the next day it rained for the first time since I had the car and the sunroof started leaking and then a few days later the radio started turning down and muting by itself, I took the car in again and the dealer had it for 3 weeks and when I picked it up all they had fixed was the sunroof.I demanded someone come out to drive the car and he got it to do the crunch going around a turn and a few days later he said it was normal, if its normal why doesnt it do it everytime?it still does the chrunchy thing a few times a week and the radio is still acting up on a daily basis and wouldnt let me press on the brakes yesterday going around a turn.the dealer says its working like it should but I dont see how if I cant use my brakes when I need them, its very dangerous and scary.I have been keeping logs and miles when these problems occured.
