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.

2002 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 112009

Passat GLX 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


bought from car dealer Passat w. 45,000 mi. 1 week ago.Car seemed to be in excellent conditions, except that I now get headaches while driving. Not my wife, kids or my trusted mechanic seem to sense anything. Car is SUPER clean. No sure what it could be. We checked with the car dealer that sold me the car, and they could not find anything abnormal....(?) ,,well, they sold the car, so they wouldn't tell me if there were something, right??? Heater coil seam to be ok, since the is no interior fogging up of windshield or loosing any cooling liquid.

Any one experiencing similar things??? PLEASE HELP....need the car; can't afford to buy NEW and NEEd to fix this problem.

Thanks. H.
