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.

2007 Volkswagen Touareg Owner Comments

Touareg 6-cyl

At 41000, the car started making a high pitch noise whenever driving. After getting a second opinion, it is determined that the bearing on the center drive shaft has failed. Called VW and confirmed the problem and that this part is not serviceable. The whole drive shaft (and a new coupler/flex disc) needs to be replaced. VW genuine parts cost $1095 on the drive shaft and $270 for the coupler; labor is set to 3 hours. Searched the internet and is indeed a common problem for VW touregs V6/V8 and also cayennes. I hope VW makes this a recall as it makes an uncomfortable ride and could be a safety issue if not replaced in time.
