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.

2007 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202007

Passat 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles


My car stopped working while I was driving on the interstate with my five year old son. We were lucky I was able to pull over without incident. The car was towed to the dealer. The fuel pump was replaced about two weeks ago, the car was only 4 months old and has only about 2500 miles, and apparently they installed it incorrectly or itwas faulty. They claimed that I ran out of gas, although the gauge read that I had half a tank.
