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.

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

My wife's 2002 Jetta station wagon turbo has been nothing but trouble. Only 30 K and today a $2,600 repair. Valve for air conditioner pump broke and sent metal fragments through the system necessitating replacement of ac pump. Cooling fan not working- that's $800. Last repair was auto windows- idiot designers put in plastic components. My wife takes excellent care of her vehicle (oil change, etc.) and this inferior bit of workmanship just costs her more money. She will shortly be dumping this piece of crap for Toyota corolla.
