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

  • 1,000 miles
2012 Jetta tdi manual, the first occurrence happened after traveling on a downhill grade when I came to a complete stop at the stoplight the car started to shutter and acted like it was going to stall. This exact incident happened several times a month for no rhyme or reason. The car has now started to do the same thing more frequently and will now stall out. It used to be on cold starts and would happen within the first 10 miles of driving. It now does it anytime you are driving. I tried to start the car after work three days ago and when I started the car it shuttered and stalled, I attempted to start the car three more times before it finally stayed started. While driving home the car acted up again at the stop light shuttering and acting like it was going to stall out. The car had to be towed to the dealership. The dealership can't figure out the problem. I am scared that I will be out in the intersection or worse be on the expressway and the car will stall out and I will end up getting hit.
