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 #1

Jetta GLS 2.8L Vr6

  • Manual transmission

My Jetta has been an awesome highway cruiser. But it's done this twice now where I'm sitting at 65-70mph on a highway where it loses power, I'm on cruise control so my reaction both times was to pin the throttle. NOTHING. It kept decelerating. So the first time it happened, I downshifted into 4th and it came back to life. The 2nd time it happened I kept the throttle pinned and eventually(3-4 seconds, an eternity when on the highway surrounded by big vehicles) it kicked back in. I have replaced the coil pack for nearly $900 but that fixed other issues, not this. I think this can be very dangerous and am nervous if it happens again and I get into an accident as all I do is highway driving at high speeds on busy roads.
