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.

Sharan Carat V6 2.8L

I'm using VW Saharan vr6 2.8, auto transmission. It was good MPV, but recently it give me headaches. Its auto transmission wouldn't work accordingly. When I drive quiet awhile, suddenly the gear drops down and wouldn't go back to top gear. I noticed than when there is a slow traffic in front, and there is heat after driving, the problem occurs. I have to stop the MPV a while, for half an hour, than it will be OK. Please give information or advise on this whoever has experience on it. Tq.
