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.

2013 Volkswagen GTI Owner Comments

problem #1

This is my second Gti. I believe there is a problem with the car or the tires but in 15000 miles I have had at least 7 tires with bubbles or damaged very easily. (at the same time I leased this car I leased a second one that has 30000 miles and has had only 1 tire problem. I filed a complaint with VW and I am waiting for their response. I will take the car today again as they returned it on Friday and as soon as I drove a few miles in bumper to bumper traffic the tire light went off. I am not driving this car again until VW assures me there is no problem. They blame it on the low profile tires but I had the same car and tire size in my previous Gti and did not have this problem. I have tire insurance so I did not have to pay for the tires but there is a lot of time wasted besides the safety issue.
