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.

Car was making a clunking noise in front, brought it to the VW dealership, after warranty expired, and they told me that the left axle needs to be completely replaced. Then after I agreed to do this, expensive/almost deadly repair, they again said it was my driving. But after taking it out, they showed me it was a defect from factory, but I still had to pay. Go figure....
