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.

I have 2007 Volkswagen Jetta wolfsberg ed and I am having serious issue with the rear brakes. I bought this brand new at 60 miles on it in June 2007.. around 18/19K I had to replace rear brakes N rotors cause they were worn and were rubbing metal on metal.. I went to the VW service they said it may have been the ebrake not adjusted correctly.. they replaced everything under warranty after arguing with them.. they tried to say it's the way I drive or I must have driven with the ebrake on.. R U kidding me!!!! I been driving for 10 yrs.. and if it was the way I drive why haven't the front brakes gone" they are still the original brakes to this date 2-12-10.. anyhow so they replaced it. Right now I'm at 29K guess what.. I had tires changed out and my rear brakes are at 30% left.. this is insane 10K an I have to change rear brakes again?? meanwhile I still have original front brakes on the car with 2/3 of life on them! my trusted/personal mech said there has to be something wrong with the braking system or hydraulics.. there's no way I should be almost on my 3rd set of rear brakes without even touching my front brakes.. he said that is not normal.. I had a 95 Camry bought it used had that for 2.5 yrs and only replaced all brakes 1 time...and isn't the stopping power on all vehicle in the front brakes.. its a fw drive car... this is getting ridiculous.. at this rate ill be changing brakes every 3 oil changes.. how does this make sense to the VW company or any mechanic for that matter"... please recall this veh for rear brake issue.. nobody has 400 dollars every 10K for brakes.. please do the right thing!!
