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.

2002 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

problem #1

Golf 4-cyl Diesel

I have a 2002 Golf tdi with manual windows. The window regulator clips broke and the window dropped into the door. This is a known issue with VW's that a service bulletin, (0603), is out on, but only for power windows. The part that os defective is common to both types but since my windows are manual I have to pay $191 for the part. If VW is replacing one type free of charge they should be replacing both. The part is defective - manual or power windows...
