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.

I bought a brand new E-golf, Nov 2015. Drove it 4 days and broke! it's been 1 month in the shop and still not repaired. Volkswagen America answer (3rd week) - we will never give you a new car, that's why it has a warranty. - we will not give your money back. - we don't have to provide you a loaner nor pay for your transportation while your car is being repaired. - you will not get compensated for anything. - you owe us this month lease payment, btw! Volkswagen America answer (4th week): We are not allowed to talk you. Get an attorney to reach out to us. Still considering to buy an E-golf?? good luck!
