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.

My car a 05.5 VW Jetta tdi has been in and out of the dealer since May 24,07 with the same trouble. Loss of power. Intermittently, most of the time with out any indication or notice. This is a safety issue when you are trying to cross the street. If cars are coming and you pull out into the street and your car has lost its power and you do not expect it. You end up cross ways in the middle of the road with on coming traffic having to brake and wait for you to get out of their way. This happens randomly so you can't prepare for it. It also will lose power while you are cruising down the road and need to push your accelerator down, and find out that nothing is happening, and you may have try some other evadecive move. I no of other people with same the car, having the same issues and dealer have not fixed their cars either.
