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.

took it to an authorized Volkswagen dealer, they couldn't figure out what the hell was wrong with it, when they finally came up with the timing chain/belt, and a few other things, it was over 3 weeks that they had it, they said they fixed it, $1200 later, and it hasn't been right ever since. car sounds awful.
