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

Noticed excessive wear on all four tires. Went to dealership to resolve the issue. They said the excessive cupping and feathering was not a Volkswagen problem. I just needed to replace the all four tires at my own expense. I went to my own mechanic and the excessive cupping and feathering was not an alignment problem or problem inherent in the tire. The weight in the rear was too light. Probably when the manufacturer used a light weight small spare, the weight of the vehicle changed and caused the excessive cupping and feathering. I added a 40lb bag of play sand in the trunk over the small spare tire and have not had any excessive cupping and feathering issues since.
