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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

this morning i started my 2000 passat and it fired right up. let it idle for about 20 minutes, moved it not even 25 feet and shut it off. when i went back to start it, lights came on, dash seemed fine, no juice. thinking it could be the starter, that or its too damn cold for my Vw. battery has life and nothing registers when i go to turn it over. its in park and while i am still able to shift through each gear, i cant seem to fix this problem on my own. any suggestions?
