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.

wont start then will start then wont. turns over fine

WTF is wrong with my car? It's a lottery ever time I go to start it. Will I get to go home from school or the store, or at the gas station, Or do I have to sit for a half hour, hour, OR MORE until the thing decides to start. Perhaps the GM of Volkswagen would like to spend a day with me playing the lottery. Is there a petition I can sign with any other VW owners to get this common problem fixed, because I'm not buying a $2000 steering column which seems to be the culprit. VW needs to fix this common problem regardless of the warranty. Whats next? Someone have any other advice or input?
