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.

Well I have had this car since new in july of 03 have had more problems than I can even remember ( I tell everyone I know don't ever, ever buy a volkswagen). My newest prob is the windows, door locks, keyless entry, alarm, and interior lights sometime work and sometime they don't work. When they don't work it is a pain in the ass to lock your doors due to safety features that prevent you from locking your keys in your car. I cant figure it out, and the volkswagen dealer we had went out of business go figure. Anyone have a similar problem? HELP
