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.

We received a notice from Volkswagen warning us that if the passenger-rear tire ran low that it could rub on the neck of the gas tank and cause it to explode (think ford pinto without having to be rear-ended).

There was no recall issued just a warning letter.

No known fix either.

Yay for Volkswagen!
