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.

This car has been nothing but a thorn in my side. The dealer claimed they replaced the seat heaters but last January 2009, while driving my but got burned, with my winter coat on, while driving and the dealer where I brought the car from the service department said the extended warranty was over. I called VW manufacturer and was told the dealer was to replace the seat heater. The heater burned clear through my seat & to my bottom, the seat & the heater had to be replaced.
