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

problem #2

Rabbit 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


Frequent near stalls of my 2007 Rabbit 2.5 automatic. This is my 2nd report to you and advised by the orlando sentinel reporter. The car's RPM drops about 1000 RPM on normal acceleration for about 4-6 seconds, never shutting off but just sitting there. This has occurred since taking the lease car in 08, but the dealership refuses to acknowledge the defect. Numerous similar complaints have been filed with edmunds and no action has been taken. This is a very dangerous condition if turning in front of an oncoming line of traffic, and I want it fixed, but also acknowledged by VW. An orlando VW technician told me it also happened in one of their new C model deluxe VW's a month ago. This drop off of power happens almost every time the car is driven. I will advise the orlando sentinel's reporter I have contacted you again. Thank you. Updated 01/18/11. Updated 04/13/11

Above ambient temperatures of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and 20 minutes of highway driving my 2007 VW Rabbit experiences bogging, jerking stalling upon coming back onto surface streets mainly the issue occurs on launching at stop lights and stop signs. Issue occurs between 3/4 and 2/3 of a tank. Incident repeats whenever conditions are right. So far diagnostic testing has turned up few leads however a variant of my car has a pending recall for similar symptoms.
