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.

Stop brake light too dim on VW Jetta 1999 old body style. I was driving on a local road with a safe distance to the car infront of me ( a Jetta 1999 old body style) all of a sudden the car stopped and I never saw its tail lights turn on. Consequently I rear ended the vehicle resulting in a total loss of my vehicle. Interestingly the driver in the car infront of me told me that ever since he had purchased this card (about 2 yrs ago) he has been rear ended 3 times before. Today I was driving down and I nearly rear ended another Jetta of the same make and model. I was obeying all traffic laws and maintaining a very safe driving distance to the vehicle infront of me. I my self own the same Jetta and several times I have heard complaints from other drivers that my tail lights are too dim and they nearly rear ended me. I will really appreciate if the office can investigate this issue. This will save a lot of people from getting injured. Thank you junaid.
