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.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 022014

Jetta GL 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 138,000 miles


Vehicle continually stalls on warm days and is producing a bad odor. Initially it appeared that this was an isolated incident or we were crazy. After finding the exact same issues from another vw owner from several years ago, I have hope that someone has an idea of what is causing this and how to repair it....HELP!
