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.

2007 Volkswagen Rabbit Owner Comments

Our 2007 VW Rabbit needs to have rear brake pads and rotors replaced... the car only has 25K on it, and this problem began to appear three months prior to today. The service department told us three months ago that the pads looked okay, even though a nys inspection station said the rear pads were very low. Now, they are hitting us up for $450 repair; they say it is not covered by warranty, but is 'standard' wear! what car needs pads and rotors so early? this is a defect.

2007 VW Rabbit made a grinding noise while using the brakes. Consumer states that dealer told him that the left rear brake was metal to metal and the right one was almost metal to metal. The dealership could not determine the reason for the uneven wearing of the rear brakes. The dealer replaced the brake pads and rotors.
