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.

While driving a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta with approx 66,000 miles the motor mount bolts broke off and the engine fell to the ground. Damages were to the suspension of the car and no one suffered injuries. The speed at the time of the incident was approximately 40 miles. No signs that the motor mounts or assembly bolts were bad or loose. The car is at the dealer because they said that the motor mounts were covered under the warranty but the bolts are not. They want us to pay $2,200 for the repairs and the warranty cover other parts. I told them that the bolts are part of the motor mounts and they fail to perform as expected. In addition the car is been maintained by the same Volkswagen dealer since we purchased the car 2 years ago. Please advise since this could have been a serious accident if I was driving on a highway as I usually do. I think the manufacturer should fix my car and inspect all Volkswagen's for any defective motor mount bolts. Thank-you
