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.

Sunroof noise, dash noise, just rattling from everywhere. Has gotten worse from day one of owning this car. They keep adding up and getting louder, my solution..... turn up the music! LOL!!!

No, on a serious note, I had the sunroof water deflector replaced, it was broken. Still makes the same noise as it did when the dealership said it was broken.... ? IDK?? How many issues/complaints is that now, are you keeping track? Basically what I am saying is this car has been my living nightmare!!! Probably spent as much money in repairs as the car cost me. Piece of s**t!!!

Very dissatisfied with VW as a company, and the dealerships attitudes with maybe, trying to solve some of these issues that soooo many of us have, especially with this year (1998).
