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.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #5

Jan 012011

Jetta Vr6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


I got the car in 2011, and didn't even know they were supposed to work. They never worked since I've had it.

problem #4

Aug 152013


  • Manual transmission
  • 130,000 miles

It flickers on and off randomly. If I turn the lights on and off, sometimes it goes away, other times, it does nothing.

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

It works sometimes. I've learned where everything is now anyway since I'm used to it never working.

problem #2

Jetta GLS

  • Manual transmission
  • 20,000 miles

I don't remember how early on this happened exactly, but the car was fairly new (like in that range where your warranty has just expired but you still like the car). I mentioned it when I had the car in to the dealer and was basically told to live with it unless I wanted to take apart the front electrical system on my own dime. So, 7 years later, I've memorized which dial controls which function, but guests in my car have to freeze or beg for help. I'm thinking of installing braille.

Jetta GLS

Again one of the many annoying things that have gone wrong in my car and will cost me an arm to fix.
