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.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 312015


  • 500 miles


The contact owns a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta. While driving 40 mph and attempting to engage the brakes, the brake pedal traveled to the floor and failed to stop the vehicle without warning. Also, the vehicle veered to the right and emitted an abnormal grinding noise. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic. The technician was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the brake pads and performed an alignment. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and verified that the vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 15V705000 (engine and engine cooling, service brakes, hydraulic). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 500.
