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.

I am beginning to feel that these cars were sold to keep auto repair shops in business. I have had the brakes replaced five times because of an apparent defect in the design. I have had engine mounts replaced, leaks fixed (or at least they have tried), a new radiator, and many, many other fussy problems. Basically, there is a major repair at least every six months. This car has scared me off of ever buying a VW again.
