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.

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

This incident has happened twice. First incident was when I encountered a herd of deer on a rural road. I was traveling at highway speed of 55 mph and had to suddenly brake and de-accelerate to avoid a collision. The folding back seats flopped down in the de-acceleration. Similarly the same maneuver occurred on an urban freeway. I had to de-accelerate to avoid a collision at 65 mph and the same event occurred. If there were passengers or a heavy load in the rear area behind the back seats, they could have been thrown against the front seats or an object from the rear could have flown forward and hit the front seat passengers. I am sure that the seats were properly latched.
