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

Jetta 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 53,400 miles


I own a 2002 VW Jetta gli, and it has merely 54,000 miles on it. It has come in standard transmission, and we bought it when it was issued as new. As I was on my way home heading towards New Jersey, from New York. My clutch pedal began to loosen up. I tried switching from 3rd gear to 4th, and the clutch loosely went to the floor, and it would not pop back up. As my car rolled on the bridge, it stayed in neutral. Hence, I was unable to move the vehicle. Now I have been reading other forums and they have gotten the same issue.
