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.

2006 Volkswagen Touareg Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 062007


  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


Constant squeaking brakes when I came off of the brakes, not pushing down this occurred for several weeks. I took in to dealer, was initially told no problem existed it was brake dust, and may need more expensive pads. I took it back about 1 month later (Sept 2007) at my 20K mile check and was told I needed whole new front brakes.
