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. Notes: VW updated the Jetta's interior and added new features like backup cameras to certain trims. Time will tell if these adjustments start falling apart.

2013 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

Jetta has odor when ac is turned on. Service department indicates the circulatory (C) must be used at all times. Does not correct issue. First time service department tco'd. 2nd time back to shop, they wanted $150 to repair after 3 months. This is a serious defect. Problem is actually caused by air condensor fluid pooling in valve instead of evaporating. Poor engineering. Causes light head must open windows for fresh air. People with parkinson's and sensitive nervous systems should avoid this car.
