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.

This is a well known problem in vehicles with the Bosch ABS control module (Audi's, VW's, etc). Don't take it to the shop. You can buy a rebuilt module for about $350.00 or have yours rebuilt for about $150.00 at http://www.modulemaster.com/vwabsbsrepair.html. I'm not doing any advertisement for them, just trying to save someone else money. The entire removal/replacement takes about 1.5 hours.

This should be something that VW recalls, but they have refused to do that.
