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

As my daughter was driving down the road her driver side window suddenly dropped into the door, creating a loud noise and serious driving distraction. She reported swerving and slamming on her brakes as she didn't know what had happened. It turns out this is a known defect, see technical bulletin 64-08-06 and the warranty was extended to cover this part, but we were never notified. Apparently, there was no recall notice, despite knowing of this ongoing problem, only a warranty extension after the problem occurs. This how now expired. She was driving down the road, in the snow, and this could have caused a serious accident.
