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.

2013 Volkswagen Touareg. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle factory trailer hitch issues. The consumer stated the advertising of the vehicle able to tow 7,600 was misleading, when in fact the owner's manual read use only a weight-carrying trailer hitch. Never install a weight distributing or load equalizing trailer hitch on the vehicle. The vehicle is not designed for this particular kind of hitch. The consumer stated he was not aware of any item, such as a boat, camper, etc, of over 4,000 pounds that would not require the use of a weight-distributing hitch. The consumer decided not to purchase the vehicle.
