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.

one valve on the engine was stuck open..The VW dealership is a rip off, $600 later the problem was fixed...but they said it pretty much costs so much because of the labor, no real parts were used to fix the problem. Also, the lady at the VW dealership said this wasn't common, but seems to be a trend!!!! She actually admitted that the engines are worthless, especially after ALL The problems I have had in the last 6 months.
