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 #2

  • 31,000 miles


2006 volkwagen Jetta tdi vehicle dom: 10/05 mileage: 31,000 windshield wiper/washer system the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta is equipped with an engine compartment mounted washer fluid reservoir and hood mounted washer fluid spray nozzles. In the area of the right hood hinge there is a flexible hose section in the plumbing of the system to allow for opening of the engine compartment hood while maintaining washer system plumbing integrity. Routine underhood fluid checks and service intervals requiring engine access have weakened and cracked the flexible portion of the plumbing rendering the windshield washer inoperative on my vehicle.

Jetta 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My radio/navigation system on my 06 VW Jetta has stopped working and resorted to "safe mode" after four attempts of the dealership attempting repair, they have stated that they will supply and install a new radio. This is still yet to happen. Also, the instrument panel clock does not keep correct time, resets back to 12:00 each time I get in the car. The weather indicator on the instrument panel dings with a snowflake, when there is no precipitation.
