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.

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

  • 86,000 miles


2009 Volkswagen Jetta tdi at 53,000 miles my radiator went out due to a design flaw were a clamp rubbed a hole in the radiator. VW would not cover under factory warranty, at 68,000 miles the alignment went out in the automobile, and finnally at 72,000 miles I noticed my transmission making a hard shift and a delay shift when taking off, I inquired about it twice at the dealer ship and was advise nothing was wrong. Then at 94,000 miles I started hearing a loud noise from my motor it is the dual mass cluch flywheel has gone out. The dealership wants $3000 to fix. I called VW of America, the vp I talked to, said just because the part was recalled in australia and Canada it doesn't mean anything to them.
