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.

2010 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

Golf 4-cyl Diesel

  • 91,356 miles


I drive a 2010 VW Golf tdi. It has been used as a work vehicle just to drive back and forth for all of its life except recently and kept extremely clean on the inside. The rear seat belts have only been used for the last 3 months when my daughter moved into a toddler seat. The rear passenger seat belt is defective and will not wind back up now being unusable.

Front seat head restraints (headrests) are tilted forward so aggressively that driving ability is impaired, and significant ergonomic discomfort results from VW's interpretation of this NHTSA requirement. Please adjust your requirements to reflect a better balance between safety and drivabilty. Thank you.
