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.

On manual transmission vehicles cruise control does not deactivate when depressing clutch, changing gear. Once clutch is released cruise automatically re engages. This is a huge safety liability. VW calls it a new feature, this feature has caused a few near misses.. this feature will eventually cause an accident I've been driving manual transmission cars for over 20 years and every time the clutch is depressed cruise turns off and will only re-engage once the button is depressed.
