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 #1

Touareg 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,700 miles


I have a 2006 VW Touareg only a month old with 2,700 miles. I was not operating the vehicle at the time which was a good thing. I left work started my Touareg and is shut off right away and would not start and the key was locked in the ignition. I had to be towed to my local dealer. It was in the shop for two weeks and there was a faulty control module. It was repaired but who knows how long it will last. From my research it appears this exact situation has occurred in the 2004 model year also which was their first year of production. It could have been deadly if this module fialed while driving because I would have had no control of the vehicle. It's terrible to see there has not been a correction since the 2004 model year to address this issue. The Touareg has hand many problems since its release in 2004.
