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.

I have experienced numerous stalls when accelerating from a stopped position. It is usually when the vehicle is warmed up and often when the outside temperature is over 80 F.

1. the horn is hard to press, and slow to react. A few times I needed to use for safety and almost was involved in accident as horn does not work properly. 2. when pressing the horn, one has to put more than adequate pressure. Once it is pressed, there is a delay of about a second before the horn blows. It occurs every time it's pressed. This is a safety issue as the horn is a good tool to alert other drivers to prevent collision. 3. dealer says it is a normal characteristic of vehicle.

2010 Jetta tdi (diesel) - at less than 3,000 miles, the car began stalling when accelerating from a complete stop. This has occurred at least six times. Have to release foot from accelerator and re-apply in order to get car to move ahead; sometimes it takes multiple attempts to get the car to move. Once power is established, the car lurches forward at full power. The car currently has less than 6,500 miles. The stalling has occurred with oncoming traffic heading toward us and creates a very dangerous situation. Car has been to dealership several times for other minor issues, and is currently at dealership undergoing more research and work related to this problem. Another problem which started at around 5,000 miles was when I put the car in gear to drive, I heard a ratcheting-type of sound. This has happened at least three times. Dealer checked this out and advised no problem found.
