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.

Dealership: Lindsay Volkswagen of dulles manufacturer: Volkswagen I have never heard from VW customer care since my initial complaint, filed 10.27.05 at 9:12 P.M., reference number 804030825. I called in Nov 05' to check on the status and a customer service rep told me I should file again (I have a reference number for that, too). I've yet to hear from them to this day. Since I bought my VW Jetta tdi 05' in March 05, I have documented how the VW dealership replaced the transmission module component, dealt with occurring problems with the asr light and a separate glow plug light situation, plus upper front strut mounts replacements. Each incident has equally colorful stories too detailed for your database character limitations.
