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.

2015 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

Just seconds after the epc light came on (I didn't know what it meant) my brakes went out. The brake pedal was stiff and my car had no response in slowing down. Luckily I had been in a position where there was time and space to react and to slow down using the E brake. Just minutes earlier I had been on the highway, as well as in some city traffic - if I lost my brakes at any other moment things could have been deadly. VW ended up swapping out the entire engine. The camshaft had broken in half. I was told by the technician that this was related to some sort of recall issue they had in the past, but I don't know anything more than that. I'm very troubled that a less than 2-year-old car with 16K miles on it can have such a sudden and serious malfunction. Please advise and ensure this does not happen to anyone else. Oh and to make things worse, I was on my honeymoon...

VW dealer and mechanic admits to driving my car and verifying in person while driving that my car tires are shaking due to the suspension of the car and I should put luggage in the trunk to help smooth the ride or go with a larger wheel size.. I feel very unsafe with family in my car. Electrical issue is a fuse keeps burning out due to an improper ground from both power plugs front and back seat. While driving the passenger door opened by itself while both hands were on the steering wheel.
