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

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 8,800 miles


Filled up my 2006 Jetta tdi and diesel fuel came out all over the car and the ground. The fuel filler design will not accommodate the larger diameter truck diesel nozzle, but that's all there was available at the service station (and at most service stations along the interstate). The previous generation fuel filler did accommodate the larger diameter diesel nozzles so I don't know what VW was thinking. VW needs to issue a recall and fix this asap. It is a safety issue due to spilled diesel fuel.
