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

problem #1

Jun 012007

Jetta 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


I was traveling down I40 West bound on the appoximate date. The pavement was wet, but not raining. I have noticed my Jetta's steering a little squirrelly over the last month. When I hit a "lump" in the road the car dragged to the left. I steered to the right which sent the vehicle into a spin. I spun out but did not hit anything. When I took my Jetta to the shop, the owner said it was a control arm and bushing problem. He stated this was a notorious problem with this vehicle. I had repairs done to the left side which amounted to $275.44 and still need to get the other side done.
