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.

I was driving home on interstate, car suddenly displays steering wheel malfunction indicator and wheel locks. I was barely able to pull off interstate and shut off car. I turned car back on after waiting 5 minutes steering wheel seemed to return to normal, within one block of exiting interstate wheel locked again. This vehicle is not even a year old, purchased brand new 7/12/2014. Very scary. I noticed several incidents of this via VW complaint site. Seems this is unfortunately very common and some kind of defect with this vehicle.
