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.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #2

Jetta 4-cyl Diesel

  • 100 miles


I purchased a new Volkswagen Jetta tdi in 2012. I am unable to adjust the left outside mirror so that it does not have a blind spot. That blind spot allows a car slowly passing in the left lane to be out of view of the inside mirror but not yet in view of the left outside mirror! the pillar separating the two doors on the driver side is located so that a driver cannot see a car in the described blind spot.
