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.

Why would a plastic oil dip stick tube be made, when the tube is heated up & cooled down repeatedly - this is MEANT TO BE BROKEN so VW HAS TO REPAIR IT & get more $'s outta everyone who has a plastic tube for their oil dip stick. & NO RECALL?

D'UH.

Anyone else have this happen?
