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.

Tdi engine wiring harness chafed inside the wire loom cause numerous electrical issues. Including ABS, steering module, airbag, engine speed sensor, temperature gauge, and stability control. Very difficult and costly to diagnose.

At my cars 20K service the dealer indicated that the brakes needed replacement. At the 50K they needed to be replaced again. Wear this rapid is disconcerting and dangerous. Had I not taken my car in for regular service this could have lead to a serious issue. I do not use my brakes heavily. Most of my driving is non-highway driving, mostly just traffic light to traffic light. I consistently use the parking brake when parking.
