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.

2004 Volkswagen Touareg Owner Comments

Touareg 6-cyl

My 2004 V6 Volkswagen Touareg frequently stalls after the engine is cranked. This has been a problem since we purchased the vehicle in Oct 2004. After cranking you can press all the way down on the gas pedal but the car will not move at all. After a few seconds, it will sputter a little then move then sputter again then it will drive normally. There is no way to tell when this will happen and I am concerned that it will cause an accident if I start the vehicle then pull out into oncoming traffic.
