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

problem #1

Feb 052013

Jetta 5-cyl

  • 100 miles


Approached traffic light (which was red). When light changed, attempted to make a left turn. No power for about 3 seconds, then accelerated through the light and all was normal. Now have about 1500 miles on the car and similar situations have occurred. Estimated that we had about 15 repeats of this problem. Dealer found no codes and could not repeat the problem. Dealer said we would have to wait until a code was recorded before they could do anything. Problem occurred twice with a cold engine and the rest of the time when the engine was thoroughly warmed up. Feel that this is a safety problem and something must be done. We could make a left turn into approaching traffic and be stalled in the middle of the intersection.. am afraid to have my wife drive the car.
