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.

Sunroof drains come apart allowing water to enter automobile. Wet interior allows mold to grow inside car causing a possible health hazard. Windows steam up blocking view out of car causing dangerous driving conditions. Water drips onto electrical connectors and moisture present in car causes corroding of electrical connections increasing the possibility of an electrical malfunction and hazardous driving condition.

We were driving on a straight well paved road, no potholes or debris, the weather is clear and sunny when our sunroof exploded outward. Fedex driver following behind us stated that nothing hit us, but saw the sunroof explode outward.

The sunroof drainage system is faulty and leaks inside the car. Dealership charged me $350 to fix (not to mention that now the car smells musty) and suggested that other VW owners with my model of car have had similar problems. I am concerned that VW did not design the system properly and should fund any modifications necessary for existing car owners.

While traveling on I-96 West traveling at 70mph the sunroof which was closed at the time suddenly exploded sending shards of glass everywhere. It sounded like a gun went off in the vehicle. I was very fortunate that the sunroof curtain was closed at the time which contained most of the glass shards. This is a serious issue that should be looked into. There was nobody else on the highway around me so there is no possibility that this was a stone or object from another vehicle. The temperature outside was 92 degrees F and I had the drivers side window open approximately 50%. this was a terrible experience that I was lucky to walk away from without physical injury. However, I will not drive this car again without an explanation! very dangerous car!!!!

The contact owns a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta. While the contact was driving 15 mph, the vehicle suddenly shifted into first gear, moved forward and stalled. The contact stated that a sensor was replaced (no more information was given). The contact also stated that the sunroof leaked when it rained. The dealer could not find the cause of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 7,000.
