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.

This is more of a question than a complaint. Recall # 11V-151000 sudden engine shut off was reported March 2011 as of April 2012 Volkswagen quarterly performance report says: Over 80% affected have been fixed and only 166 were unreachable. So why do I see the same complaint on your website as late as Aug 2013 could this be the few that were not fixed" or is it possible the problem is affecting more cars than reported? I have a 2010 Routan, I am seriously thinking about trading it in before the "sudden engine shut off" happens to my family. Am I paranoid? or do I have a valid point. Can someone tell me" Volkswagen says I am paranoid. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
