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.

My 2010 Tiguan has experienced a couple of significant issues due to design - one a burned fuse box and two a major water leak inside the right front passenger floorboard. Both issues stem from design and not wear and tear. Both repairs were costly - $561 and $753. I have received a safety recall 97Z9 from VW for a fuse issue and will be waiting on a response. I've also submitted an inquiry to VW asking about plans to review the drain hose issue. Had I not investigated the strong damp smell in the interior of the vehicle I would not have found the saturated floorboard and I do mean soaking wet. Both drain hoses were found to have small leaks and the route of the hoses dumps right into the cabin - again this is not a wear and tear issue - it's a design/product issue. As a precaution the dealer recommended that I have all of the hoses replaced to prevent future water damage. I've seen numerous complaints from other VW owners about the drain hoses being defective so this appears to be a larger issue than just a few vehicles. Thank you.
