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.

2010 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

The daytime running lights (drl) as implemented on the 2010 Volkswagen Passat wagon are a safety hazard. The only lights that light up are the headlights, not the rear, front, to side "running" lights. A driver can easily start driving at night without any rear or side lights on. The drl headlights on, gives the driver the false impression that their lights are on. When in fact, only the headlights are on.
