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 contact owns a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta. While driving approximately 65 mph she heard a throbbing noise coming from the speakers and all of the interior lights stopped functioning. She was also unable to use the radio. The vehicle was driven onto the emergency lane and shut off. Upon restarting the vehicle it would function normally. The failure continued to occur intermittently. She also stated that she would attempt to change the radio station but the radio would intermittently display a message reading "no cd" or "no magazine". a few months later while driving approximately 10 mph the vehicle stalled. Upon restarting the vehicle it functioned normally. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on 3 occasions where they were unable to diagnose the failures. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 100 and the current mileage was 10,000.
