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

While on the freeway we had a blown tire in our 2002 VW Jetta gls VR6 vehicle. We could not open the wheel bolts since they were glued from the factory, into the wheel. It took a 4' piece of pipe to operate the bolts wrench to open them. Furthermore, the jack supplied with the vehicle is undersized and unsafe to operate. It shifted with the vehicle and was not able to provide a steady support for raising the vehicle for the wheel change. After a few tries, we resorted to using a hydraulic jack supplied by the local sheriff deputy who was passing by the location we were stopped at.
