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.

  • 6,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit. When starting off from a stopped position and the consumer steps on the accelerator, the vehicle moves forward about ten feet and then dies no response from the accelerator. In the same position as when starting from a stopped position. The car stays in hesitation mode for a period of 2-5 seconds, then the vehicle would accelerator rapidly. The failure mileage was 6,000 and current mileage was 37,000. Updated 02-18-09 updated 02/18/09.
