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

Jetta GS

  • 57,000 miles


Just had to take my 2000 Jetta in because of some brake noise in the back end. I just replaced my rear brakes about 6 months ago so I was a little disturbed to already be having problems (for some reason the back brakes went way before the front brakes). Anyway, the shop specializes in VW's, Audi's etc and let me know that I had a bad caliper on the the passenger back side and would have to be replaced. The VW replacement caliper was $239.00 for the part alone!!! The manager told me that after the 2000 body changeover he has seen many, many Jettas with the same problem and he believes VW is sending out bad calipers on many cars.
