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.

2013 Volkswagen Passat Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 262013

Passat 5-cyl

  • 1,200 miles


Our 2013 Volkswagen Passat leaked gasoline on to our garage floor while sitting in the garage. The garage floor was covered and you could visibly see the fuel dripping from the gas tank. The fumes filled our garage and home and resulted in extensive clean up and ventilation. The Volkswagen dealership arrived with a flat bed and towed the car back to the dealership. The man who towed the car even commented about the odor and you could visibly see the gasoline running from the car as it was loaded on to the flatbed. The Volkswagen dealership says there is nothing wrong and no changes to the vehicle are necessary!
