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.

Touareg 6-cyl

  • 76,255 miles
All headlamps flickered with no notice and then went dark. Used bright headlamps but they would not stay on permanently. Had to drive holding brights in manual mode. Immediately phoned VW to explain and they advised I needed new headlamp bulbs. Hard to believe all of my bulbs went out at the same time. I've googled to learn that VW has headlamp problems reported but the consumer is still responsible for the cost to repair/replace.
