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.

2006 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 24,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta. While driving between 1-30 mph, shifting from 3rd to 2nd gear, the vehicle shut off. The failure only occurs when the air conditioning is turned on high. The contact stated that the failure has been occurring for the last three years. She feels it is a safety issue because it puts her at risk of crashing the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a shop on four occasions. The first three times the mechanic was unable to determine the cause of the failure. After the most recent failure, the mechanic determined a possible cause of the failure. The current and failure mileages were 24,000.
