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.

problem #1

Passat 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,700 miles


Spent all my f*cking money on this car and to find out I need a freaking transmission! They dealer said $4,500.00 side garage said $1.500.00 to $2.000.00 to fix. I can't stop crying I'm a single mother and can't believe I got rip off like this. I had a Camry before this and a lady that was trying to hurry up and get home hit me head on and totalled my car. So that's why I brought this piece of junk and spent all my money on it. Now I have to try and get it fixed!!! Totally not worth the money i spent!!! ugh!!
