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.

Jetta Hybrid

  • 32,000 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta hybrid premium. The contact stated that the electronic control warning light illuminated as the vehicle accelerated independently. The contact was at a complete stop when the vehicle then independently accelerated to 5 mph but the contact was unable to accelerate any higher than 5 mph. The contact shut the vehicle off and once restarted, the vehicle resumed normal operation. The failure recurred twice. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. However, the failure was unable to be duplicated or repaired. The manufacturer was also made aware of the issue but provided no assistance. The approximate failure mileage was 32,000.
