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.

problem #2

Sep 222011

Jetta 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


I am on my second Mass air flow sensor. Originally about a year ago, The car ran so bad it would hardly pull itself. Through a little bit of research, I found some info about the problem. I unhooked it and it smoothed right out, but engine light still on. I replaced it, and it ran fine. Well a year later The engine light is on, code 104, the car is stalling at times and idles rough at times. I have to again buy another MAF sensor.... German Junk.

problem #1

(reported on)

Jetta GLS 2.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

When car is started it will idle until engine warms up.. then starts to hesitate... idle fluctuates all the time... and when you stop in traffic with car in drive it wants to stall out also. Had mass air flow sensor changed ($200) and ignition coil changed ($420) and still does it. about to light the son of a bitch on fire.
