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.

VW attempted to fix probablem where trunk unlocked while driving and attributed to electrical problem.

This still occurs after 15 years of ownership, but not very often. But definitely annoying when driving on the interstate because the trunk IS unlocked even though the lid is down.
