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.

I talked to a friend, and despite working on cars his whole life, he's never heard of a water pump with a plastic impeller. ...it just wears out, and starts slipping on the motor shaft. With no water pump, the car has no cooling, and therefore cannot be driven (without overheating the engine anyway). ALL volkswagens with plastic impellers will face this issue.
