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.

problem #2

Aug 092016


  • 107,000 miles


We have had two rims bend out of shape resulting in flats in the space of three weeks. The first occurred when striking a minor pothole (<1" deep) at low speed, and the other happened on the highway with no apparent pothole or debris. The extreme fragility of the rim makes it appear defective. We are careful drivers and have not had any accidents with this vehicle, and the vehicle has been properly maintained.

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

  • 60,000 miles
On four separate occasions we have hit pot holes in the road at moderate speed resulting in an aluminum, wheel incurring substantial bending and going out of round. When this happens the wheel goes out of balance and the car looses stability on the highway. Both my wife and I have each been driving for more that 40 years and we have never experienced this degree of fragility in the wheels of any of our prior vehicles. The wheel design is of soft aluminum and the structure is cantelevered over the brake disc giving it very little central support to resist bending when confronted with ordinary road deformities. We have kept the last two wheels that were damaged in this manner and we would be happy to make them available for inspection. The first two were kept by the dealer at the time of replacement.
