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 VW 2006 Passat sedan has always had a windshield fogging problem when the de-fogger is turned on, the windshield foggs up completely, then takes 30 to 45 seconds to clear. I've complained about the situation to trend motors of rockaway NJ several times and have been told that this is normal.and I should put the air conditioner on and that will clear up the problem. Eventually the windshield does clear but, I cannot see thru the windshield for 30 to 45 seconds. I believe this is a dangerous hazard.

I have a problem with the A/C of my 2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0. the technician tells me that basically all the components of my A/C system is damaged and need to be replaced. After I search the internet, a lot of people have been having the same problems since 2007 and it's for models from 2001 to 2007 (as far as I can find now). Please investigate this issue because I believe it's a design problem instead of a wear and tear problem. Hopefully we as consumers can rely on you to help us fight for justice.
