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.

2005 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

problem #1

Volkswagen 2005 Golf: Both front exterior lights, day time and night time went out. The fuse was good and the light bulbs were out. Apparently, the wiring had a malfunction which also caused the interior light on the climate controls to go off. The fuse was good as well. Another malfunction from thevw company. Lastly, driver side front window went down while driving to work 25 mph. I did not touch the window nor tried to open or close it, it went done completely and it is inside the won't go up nor down. It is not broken either. It is very dangerous to drive with no window in the winter. Snow, hail. Rain can happen while the window went down while driving. It's very unpleasant to have wind and cold of 3 degrees below zero hit your face and go in the car to the other passengers. The hail, rain or snow can that can get in the car can cause further damage inside the car.
