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.

2006 VW Golf tdi 70K miles of normal driving conditions in Illinois. Failure of both driver and passenger side coil springs within 6 weeks of each other. In each case the coil spring broke towards the end. At the top on one side, on the bottom on the other side. Coil springs are generally fairly sturdy under normal driving conditions. Could there have been a manufacture defect? (the failed springs to not appear to be corroded at the failure point, looks more like clean snap.)
