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.

I own a 2005 VW Touareg and the brakes squeal at slow speeds. The dealership says this is normal for brakes to squeal on a heavy SUV. The car is practically brand new, and even though the dealership changed the brake pads due to a tsb from VW, the brakes still squeal. It appears VW knows its a design defect because they've announced that "larger brakes" will be added to the new 2007 Touareg's in the future.

The brakes in my 2005 jetta gli make a very loud noise when I back up. It was a recall and they told me the first day that they had taken care of it, and that if I keep on hearing the noise take it back. Well the noise its pretty bad, so I took the car back and they said they couldnt do anything about it, but I don't think they even looked at the car, because when I picked it up it was exactly how I left it and usually they wash you car or put plastic when they see it.
