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

First noticed that the sunroof on my '06 Jetta tdi would intermittently open and (sometimes) close on it's own. Since then my door locks no longer function on the drivers side front and rear doors. I cannot use the key to lock all of the doors and activate the car alarm. The rear driver side door never locks even with the key and cannot be opened from the inside by the passenger. The alarm system will not engage and the rear windows will only operate from the driver's door. Initially these issues would come and go but have now become a continuous problem. The car cannot be secured. These issues pose a safety hazard to my family and my personal property. I was planning on passing the car down to my son when he becomes old enough to drive (in 2 years) however with these issues I do not trust the safety of this vehicle. After researching the complaints in this database I am shocked that VW has not been made to fix the problem under a recall. This is a common, recurring problem that needs to be addresses by the manufacturer.
