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.

My future daughter in law owns a Volkswagen Jetta. Went to gas station for gas and could not fill the tank. Took the car to Volkswagen dealer where they are charging over 800. Dollars to put in a new gas tank, since the car is relatively new this seems like it should be a recall. Or at least under warranty. If she was on the highway she would have been stuck in the lanes with no way of filling that tank...can you research these gas tanks for the safety of people.

The vehicle has been seen by mechanics from two different dealorships on five occasions due to the check engine light to date. On the fourth trip to the shop it was evaluated by the mechanics as having defective gas tank that had a slow leak. On this occasion the auto was kept for 1 week for repairs. Here we are a week later and the light is back on and it's back in the shop again. Meanwhile I am on probation at my new job and am having to take considerable time off due to these repairs. I am still on probation at this job and I have also missed out on the opportunity of overtime because of continual trips to the dealors shops. I have only made three payments on the car to date and I am paying for something that is in the shop as much as it is in the driveway. Aside from the fact that I have reached the point where I am afraid to drive it for I fear it could possibly be a deathtrap! I am not sure about the belt question that are within this form.
