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 VW Touareg windshield wiper system. When wiper is set to wipe continuously, wiper stops when vehicle comes to a full stop, and will not begin to wipe until vehicle exceeds 5 mph. During heavy rains, it is unsafe to proceed too 5 mph when windshield wiper is not wiping. No visibility in heavy downpour conditions, must put vehicle in forward motion to wipe and see. Accident waiting to happen. Manufacturer indicates this is a "feature" not defect!

The Touareg has two defcts that will eventually lead to if they have not caused damge. For months I have tried to get VW to fix the defective tail light faults and warnings due to the installation of the tow hitch. VW claims these issues are related to all trailers. Additionally, this vehicle has a defective drivers windsghield wiper that causes obscured visability. Both are dangerous and VW claims noraml operation. I am frusterated and in disbelief that VW will not correct the vehicles issues. I am writting in an attempt to represent the people against this vehicle manufacture

Vehicle would jump forward when making turns, making it difficult to control vehicle. Owner took vehicle to dealer for repair of the transfer case 3 times. The accelerator pedal would get stuck, which was not enabling the vehicle to accelerate and to change gears. Also, windshield wipers would work intermittently, causing visibility problems on the road during inclement weather. In addition, the battery would drain and cause the vehicle not to turn on. Manufacturer was contacted by owner numerous times.
