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.

2005 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 052005

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 400 miles


On the 'new' 2005.5 Jetta tdi diesel vehicle, the fuel nozle inlet is too small to use a moajority of the diesel fuel pumps more commonly found at truck stops. Since when traveling cross country you would most like stop at a truck stop to fuel up, you would most likely be out of luck -and have 'search' for a gas station in a strange town, away from your route, that 'might' have a smaller nozle that would fit your fuel tank. The older Jetta, golf and passat cars use a lager fuel inlet that is universal in terms of being able to fuel up anywhere. The current 2005 passat has the larger inlet, so what gives with the new Jetta" tdi owners travel great distances and would like to not be stranded or made to go out of their way just to fuel up. VW should retrofit the older style nozle on these cars, or purchase a smaller fueling pump nozle for every gas staion or truck stop that sells diesel in the country. Which is easier"
