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.

Back brakes and rotors had to be replaced on my 2001 Jetta glx V6 which was purchased 08/01. I only had 23,000 miles on the car! at my 20,000 mile service no problems were mentioned. My check engine light came on too. I had to have my O2 sensor replaced under warranty. The warranty did not cover the brakes. I do not ride the brakes. 1 month after I bought the car I noticed that when I start it in the morning it makes a sound like and old junky car would. I had it to the dealer twice for this and they said its nothing and that's the way a V6 sounds! it only does it on the first start of the day. I am afraid it will end up being some very expensive problem in the future. 9 months after I had the car the arm rest came apart and had to be fixed under warranty. I will never buy another Volkswagen again and I would not recommend them to my friends who are md's and rn's and can afford nice cars.

Consumer states that when starting the vehicle the alarm sounds and horn goes off and lights flash on and off for about 10 minutes. This also happens when opening doors to exit the vehicle. Also the illuminated entry and the power door locks were not working. The dealer has replaced wiring and relay in the doors, the radio ignition switch, and door lock, however the problem still exists. The dealer now states that there is nothing further they can do. Nlm front bumer pulled loose. Bumper and lower facia reinstalled.
