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.

Another sludge engine gone. Took to VW and they said new engine or junk it. Was told this happens to alot of VW's and if I had all the oil changes done at VW or with all my paperwork on oil changes they would fix it. Ya good luck. This company should not be allowed to sell autos in the US. Will put the car in the driveway with a large sign on it to let everyone know not to buy one of these junkers.
