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.

2010 Volkswagen Routan Owner Comments

problem #1

Routan 6-cyl

On 1/7/13 we were simply trying to open the rear power lift gate using the remote and overhead button to no avail. Extremely disappointed to find out that the rear deck lid lift gate drive unit chain (part#51528) broke thus causing the power lift gate of our Routan SE to be inoperable. After 3yrs and barely 7 months of normal use, we are appalled that this chain for the power lift gate would suddenly break for no logical reason. What is more shocking, the price for this part is $1,100 excluding labor. This is the quote that was given today by king Volkswagen service department.
