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.

2015 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

problem #1

The drivers side high beam is not aimed properly, it is pointed below the cut-off line of the low beam. The head lamp assembly has been replaced by the dealer twice but the aim was not improved. Volkswagen was contacted, they evaluated the situation and said that this was the way the system was designed and so could not be fixed. The dealer also said that they looked at other cars of this same model and they all operated the same. Both the high and low beam reflectors are mounted in a common housing and the assembly only has one adjustment so both beams move up and down by the same amount. This appears to be a design defect. I feel this is a safety hazard as only one of the high beams is illuminating the road.
