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.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
On my 2004 touraeg, after tilting the front seats back all the way to the horizontal position, the airbag warning light came on. It turned out that the connectors for the side air bags got disconnected since the cables are too short or are not mounted right. I got the connectors reconnected and now no longer move the seats back in order to avoid this from happening again.

Steering wheel airbag module (horn area) "popped" out of place while the car was parked. Airbag module was then no longer seated properly.
