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.

2007 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #2

Jetta 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


At 20,000 miles my leased 2007 VW Jetta's rear brakes started squeaking and grinding. Took it to dealership and was told that the rear pads and rotors need to be replaced ($350!). I've never had a car with brakes problems this early, specially a front wheel drive car. I did some research and I see that this seems to be a manufacturing defect and VW should acknowledge it and fix it at no cost to the customer.
