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.

VW advertises a 4 link front suspension( 2 control arms for each side) for this car which is awesome what they don't tell you is there is a fifth piece that can be adjusted to pull the wheel in and out. Most cars only have toe and camber to do a alignment the passat has a third depth adjustment. Some techs have no idea about this ask before hand.
