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.

The fog light panel fell of. At first I thought I hit something then I went to VW and they told me that it's a known problem. I brought a new one for $19 and it snaps right in. Just check the panel once in awhile to check if it's not falling off

The fog light panel falls off every couple of years, while driving. Fortunately, it's one of the few inexpensive parts on this car. There are two other similar Passats in our neighborhood, and they are missing the exact same body panel.
