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.

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan Owner Comments

  • 20,000 miles


My wife was driving. Shortly after getting on the interstate, her rear driver side tire blew out (the whole rim was detached). She did not hit anything and she was not speeding. Investigating the parking lot that she pulled out of, there were black marks. We live right off the interstate. The dealer identified a second tire with a flaw in the wall of the tire. 2 tires had to be replaced. This was a brand new vehicle with ~20,000 miles on it (mostly interstate driving). We found similar issues with this brand of tire though google searches and believe the tire should be recalled before someone dies. The company was unwilling to work with us on the issue. I would like to share the photo of the blow out with you. We brought the vehicle to the dealer that evening. We asked the next morning if they would save the tire, but discarded them already. The manufacturer of the tire refuses to work with us because they felt since we did not have the physical tire or "evidence" it was not their problem.
