Denial of Motor Vehicle Defect Petition, DP19-003
Document Number: 2020-14157
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-07-01
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice sets forth the reasons for the denial of a petition, DP19-003, submitted by Mr. Kevin O'Brien to the Administrator of NHTSA (the ``Agency'') by a letter dated August 12, 2019. The petition requests that the agency initiate a safety defect investigation into an alleged ``excessive stalling problem'' experienced by operators of 2019 Model Year (MY) Volkswagen GTI, Jetta GLI, and Golf GTI manual transmission vehicles (the ``subject vehicles'') ``as the vehicles slow to a stop or prepare to make a turn across traffic with the clutch pressed in and the car in neutral.'' After conducting a technical review of: (1) Consumer complaints submitted by the petitioner; (2) consumer complaint information in NHTSA's databases; and (3) information provided by Volkswagen in response to our information requests regarding vehicle stalling and complaints received by Volkswagen, NHTSA's Office of Defect Investigations (ODI) has concluded that it is unlikely that additional investigation would result in a finding that a defect related to motor vehicle safety exists. As a result, no further investigation of the issue raised by the petition is warranted and the agency, accordingly, has denied the petition.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Port Angeles, WA; Port Angeles, WA
Document Number: 2020-14056
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes a Class E surface area, Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. Following a review of the airspace serving Port Angeles CGAS and William R Fairchild International Airport, the FAA found it necessary to provide Port Angeles CGAS with airspace independent of the airspace for William R Fairchild Airport. A microclimate at Port Angeles CGAS causes weather patterns to vary from the weather at William R Fairchild Airport. The difference in weather between the two locations can negatively impact operations at Port Angeles CGAS, impeding training and mission accomplishment. This action will establish new airspace for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.
