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.

2012 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

Glow plug and check engine indicator appeared while driving approximately 45 mph in vicinity of the M-10 freeway in detroit, mi. Vehicle power unexpectedly cut out, forcing me to maneuver off of the road at a speed lower than surrounding traffic. I picked up the vehicle on 19 Aug from the dealer and experienced an identical problem in vicinity of 9 mile road and middlebelt in farmington hills, mi. VW later informed me that the problem was associated with a failure of the high pressure fuel pump.
