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 1.8L 4cl Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

This is a common problem with these 4cl turbo Passats. It is very expensive but don't let just ANYONE tell you that they know how to fix it. Take it to a specialist that knows VWs. I learned that the hard way and had to have it done AGAIN by a performance shop when the 2nd turbo when out the next day after a mechanic working out of his house "fixed" it for me.
