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

On 30 October 2006, I had to have my 2002 Volkswagen that was purchased brand new towed into the dealership. My car wouldn't start. Thought it was the battery, replaced the battery and it still wouldn't start. I had to have the power wire to the starter replaced. I'm being told by the dealership that it is very uncommon for this wire to be replaced. I just would like to know from Volkswagen have they received in other complaints. I think this is something of a manufacture defect.
