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

Passat 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My 2007 VW Passat wagon has 3 times on trips longer than 4 hours in 0 degree weather started chugging and shaking on the highway. Each time has been worse and lasted longer. The first time a call to a VW dealer said it was the gas cap and it would be ok. The second time a Subaru mechanic diagnosed misfiring and a bad coil so I took it to a VW dealer who said there was nothing they could find wrong to fix. The third time I was nearly stranded on a remote highway. I eventually got home to my private mechanic who agreed it was misfiring and a bad coil and will fix it.
