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 have had the check engine light on for awhile. I took it to Volkswagen. I changed the engine cover because oil was slipping in. 2 months later the problem is back. I called Volkswagen. They sent me 1k to buy another Volkswagen. I don't want another Volkswagen. This car is such a lemon. German engineering???
