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.

2000 Volkswagen Polo Owner Comments

When you use brake and it gets slower, the engine stops. I was told that VW is the best! In Bursa its service agency cost more money and they are not friendly. After I sold my VW, I saw that it had an accident in appx 1 month! Now I have a Toyota Yaris 1.3. and I am welcomed like a princess at the service agency and pay less.I was told that since Turkey is not a developed country, VW sends the cars that have not made Quality control very well.I hope it's not true. My colleague Yıldız Coşkun had the same car and had the same problem. Can it be a coincidance?

Thank you.Best Regards,
