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.

The vehicle hesitates when taking off from a stop. I feel this is unsafe because the danger of being hit if you pull out in front of another vehicle and the car hesitates. It appears that all of 2007 VW autos do this. I met with a repair manager from boardwalk VW and a rep from VW of America. I was told that there is nothing to repair that this is normal. 3 of 4 vehicles I draw do it. I also road in another vehicle at the dealership and could feel it while the VW rep drove it. I could see his body move as it did it and he denied. I bought the vehicle for my twin daughters that turn 16 in October. The vehicle is unsafe and really unsafe for inexperienced drivers. The vehicle was bought new about 2 months ago.
