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.

Since I purchased a 2004 VW Touareg on 2/28/04 I have had various problems with it. The most severe is the front end allignment and brakes. I have had a total of 6 front end allignments since I purchased the vehicule. It is in the shop right now and they can not correct it. This is a an extreme hazard at higher speeds since the SUV pulls hard to the right. I was told by the mechanic that worked on my vehicule that he set the allignment to factor specs and it still pulls to the right. I took it to tire kingdom twice and they did the same and did a high speed balance on the tires as well and it still pulls to the right. Also volkwagon of America put out circular vwa-04-12 stating that there is a factory problem with front end allignments on certin VIN numbers on the Touareg. VW will not acknowledge that there is a problem. I also have trouble with the breaks making loud noise and wearing out fast. Now they are telling me that the rotors are bad. I have complained about the brakes and nothing was done. Also there is condensation on the windshield from the air conditioning and they did have a recall on this, but the trouble still exsists.
