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

  • miles


I own a 2006 VW Jetta tdi and have 30,000 miles on the vehicle. I noticed at about 25,000 miles the vehicle developed a vibration in the front end. I took it to the VW dealer and had the front end inspected for problems, but none noted. I had the wheel rotated and balanced and that did not help the problem. The tech at VW dealer noticed wear in the middle of the tire. He stated that my tires (turanza el 400-02, 205/55R16) are more than likely the cause of the vibration and there is nothing they could do except replace all the tires. Will be taking the vehicle to a Firestone dealer soon to fight the battle with them.

Jetta 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,700 miles
I leased my 2006 Jetta 2.0 in January 2006. Currently the car has stalled on me 4 times and I have had numerous failed starts. The vehicle fails to start when I use the main key and the valet key. This problem has become pretty consistent now that I have put more miles on the vehicle. I am now at 20K and its been a headache all the way. I can only be thankful that when the car stalled on me on numerous occasions that I was not in heavy traffic. The dealership says that they can not identify the problem and therefore there is nothing that can be done. Supposedly, the car starts without a problem when it is in their service bay. In addition, when I first got the vehicle, my back seat latches were broken causing the back seat to lunge forward during hard stops and turns. This made my Jetta a two passenger vehicle! also, the hazard lights and switches were malfunctioning. The front suspension or the brakes make a grinding noise or they have a loose feel, I haven't been able to put my finger on it yet. Im taking it to the dealership once again tomorrow! my steering column make a faint squeaking noise during turns, I have no idea what that problems is. In the morning after I can get the car started the engine is loud for about two minutes. The dealer fixed the latch problems but the other problems go unfixed and remain a huge mystery.
