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.

I bought my car last year 02/15/2007, its a Volkswagen Jetta wolfsburg edition yr. 2007.. here are the incidents with my car: 1) 08/06/ 2007- horn is not working. According to VW service men they found a faulty spiral spring via gff test plan R&I driver airbag, steering wheel, column trim and steering column electronics control module R&R spiral spring and performed basic settings during road test and ckl'd ok. 2) 08/06/ 2007- airbag light indicator is on. According to VW servicemen they found a fault for the driver side airbag igniter resistance too high after unplugging the component and replacing it within a known good one found that the value in the measure value blocks didn't change and checking the steering wheel control moudleconnectors to see if they were damaged they figured it could only be the spiral spring that is faulty. Ordered spiral spring. 3)11/08/ 2007- performed recall Q-8 / inspect headlights 4) 01/08/2008- break is making noise.. according to VW service men they checked for noise from brakes, found rear brake pads were metal to metal. Replaced rear brake pads and rotors. Found E-brakes cables adjusted too tight adjusted cables. Found rear calipers dragging. Replaced bad calipers and performed test drive. 4) 01/19/ 2008- when I turned on my airconditioner on last Saturday, 01/19/ 2008 a smoked is coming out through my rite rear tire and it smells like something is burning. I called the VW service they said I can come in on Monday anytime to have it checked. I did come in yesterday Monday, January 21, 2008 to have it checked one of the service men test drive the car with me but then there is no smoke coming out anymore so what he advised me to do is just take my car with me again and if it happens again then come back. He just look around my car and the hood and didn't find anything wrong. My concerns is I don't think am safe driving my car anymore because I don't know what's going happen next, and I think my car will be considered as a lemon car.

Rear brakes I feel their is a defect. Have replaced them once at about under 13 thousand miles and again now over 13 thousand miles the vehicle has the same issue. It is not reasonable for rear brakes to wear down before the front. Now Volkswagen is giving me the run around. It has less than a year since purchase and I have to spend another 5 hundred dollars to get these fixed. I can be going through brakes like that.

I have a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta (wolfsburg edition). My car has 17,000 miles on it. I brought it to the dealer because the rear brakes were grinding extremely loud. Upon inspection I was told that I needed new rear pads and rotars. I have never in my life had to replace rear brakes and rotars at 17,000. I purchased this car brand new and have not even had it one year. I don't think any car should have rear brakes completely go at 17,000 miles.
