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.

First of all I never wanted my wife to get the stupid car but she insisted she wanted a Volkswagen Jetta or beetle. Since we have had it there have been numerous problems. Recently she noticed that only the brake lights would be on when she returned to the car. She started checking to make sure everything was off when she left her car and when she would return the brake lights would always be on. I haven't figured out what exactly is wrong but we don't have the money to be spending on repairs right now. Last night this problem caused the battery to die and I don't want to replace the overly expensive battery before fixing the problem.
