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

Aug 262013


  • 13,000 miles


My vehicle suddenly lost acceleration and subsequently stalled. Fortunately, I was able to pull between some construction cones before it lost power completely. Upon towing to a dealer, I was told the fuel pump had failed. VW warranty will cover all damage, but it is considerable. All fuel injectors, pumps, lines etc will be replaced. I soon learned from friends that this happened to their tdi model vehicles as well. All information that I find dates to 2011, but you need to know this problem is still occurring. I am very cautious about where I fill up and still experienced this failure. In spite of being assured by the VW mechanic that my car will be "perfect, " I feel that I need to report this incident.
