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.

2004 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Passat 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Internal gears were worn to the point of failure, was unable to shift. I am very disappointed that VW was not willing to cover the cost or warranty the transmission simply because we were over the warranty miles but under the warranty years. Because the failure was due to wear the failure took place early in the cars life not when the catastrophic failure took place.
