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.

On August 28 2016 prior to charging E-golf, charging system failed causing the damage on the electrical system and battery. The car was parked on the ucsd thornton parking lot. At that time car odometer shows 8727 miles. Volkswagen didn't (failed to) inform me about the recall for the software that control charging system and battery charging. Not sure if the software for the battery/charging system is the only problem since the Volkswagen of America state that battery needs to be inspected, tested and if broken fixed or replaced. Since then the car has been unable to start or move. Volkswagen of America take the car to oxnard the only available service center for E-golf in California. The car has not been fixed yet since the August 29th when the car has been diagnosed with the battery and electrical issues.

The E-golf lost ability to drive, there is a red triangle with an exclamation mark on the dash, and the red car icon with an exclamation on it, indicating a "electrical error" according to the manual. All other functions of the car seem to be working, except it won't start, and the key fob lock/unlock is not responding, so my car is stuck in the middle of the parking lot unable to move. Having the no choice because my car was not moving and sitting in the middle of the valet parking lot, I told them to do it, in the mean time the valet had "his boss" come and look at the car, this guy took my key fob, pressed lock/then unlock, held if close to the stop/start button, and depressed the brake, suddenly the car restarts, dials move, he does this a few times and now the car is completely normal.
