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.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

The fuel injection system on my Jetta tdi went bad. The car had 35,000 miles on it which was 5,000 past warrenty. Volkswagen agreed to pay part of the repair, but the cost to me was still over $600. The glow plugs and harness to the glow plugs have also been replaced after warrenty. I have never had so many expensive repairs on a "new" car before. Now the brake switch needs replaced because the brake lights would not come on. Replacement switch has part no. Vwn 1J0945511D.
