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.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 182010


  • 19,800 miles


1. driving normally on highway when it came on and the car lost power suddenly and could not accelerate any further. Also car stalled several times on its own while idling at a traffic light (its an automatic transmission this should not be happening). 2. this is the second time this same problem has happened in first 20K miles of this vehicle its an 2010 VW tdi. First time it was at 9800 mile mark same light and problem came on they replaced a egr valve and now again at 19800miles. 3. they have replaced a part at 9800 miles and now replacing it again at 19800miles. It seems to be a repeat problem with this vehicle and very dangerous to have it slow down like that while driving and also stall out while in traffic.
