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.

My second issue is when my window stop working. First it was only the back passenger side and vw fixed it but I stilled had to pay out of pocket. Then a few months later they both stop working. I went to vw to see if they would repair both windows since they had all ready fixed one before and I was told that I would have pay for both windows, although it had been repaired in the past but offensively not repaired correctly they would not redo the repair for the passenger side and I pay for the other. So when my was working I just can't use the back windows. Sad isn't it.
