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.

problem #2

Golf 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles


- the contact owns a 2006 VW Golf 16000 and stopping and pressing on the accelerator the vehicle revved up, but did not move. The contact said that it didn't happen all of the time, and the weather conditions have not been a factor. The contact took the car to the dealer they made an adjustment, but the contact felt that itwas worse now.

Speedometer provides an incorrect reading by german law. This reading is off by 1-10 mph, and is a safety hazard. It is also easily fixed.
