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.

Airbag module defective with only 54,496 miles and a $1200 cost to fix. This is a safety issue! dash lighting has went on and off for airbag. A washer pump defective, power train transmission jumps and has been an ongoing problem and known problem by Volkswagen but nobody wants to admit the defect problem.

Touareg 8-cyl

  • 67,000 miles
I was driving on 101 South from santa rosa towards san francisco and when in the novato area the rearview mirror came off dangling from the headliner by the wiring harness right on my face. The dangling rearview mirror blocked my view of the road and this big distraction nearly caused an accident. This is clearly a safety issue, rearview mirrors should not just randomly fall off. I strongly believe that Volkswagen ought to have a recall for this defective mirror and perform a repair at VW's expense. My aaa certified mechanic quoted me in excess of $700 to re-glue the rearview mirror to the windshield.
