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 an air bag light on and I get a warning sign that it should be serviced. Wipers are not that effective and I keep on having fogy windows so I have to keep on adjusting the heat.

There is a manufacturer's defect in material for the leather seats and headrest. Volkswagen is not willing to honor the warranty for the limited new vehicle. I wanted to a independent auto interior specialist, who said it needs to be replaced. Yet, Volkswagen said it's normal and said the other vehicles are the same. However, when asked to see the other vehicles there was none available.
