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

Jetta 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

A defect with my right rear wheel bearing was detected over two weeks ago. It is faulty. My car has 32000 miles on it. I contacted the dealer for its replacement. The dealer diagnosed the problem, and said it should be covered under the powertrain warranty. However, he later came back and said Volkswagen would not cover it. I have an extended warranty, but I am being asked to pay the deductible. The customer service agent at Volkswagen (I called the company directly) said they would "not offer any goodwill in this case". I know this is a defective part, yet VW is refusing to take 100% care of it. It is a safety issue and needs to be replaced immediately.
