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.

Our certified pre-owned BMW 2001 325ci convertible pruchaed in June of this year stalled in traffic, causing the loss of control of the vehicle and resulted in a crash. The car driven my Mrs. Kluepfel had just turned right out of the library onto route 535, hiltop road mendahm at a speed of 10mph when lost power (all idiot lights were light on the dashboard) with the loss of control. The car was towed under police orders to morristown BMW, 170 madison avenue, morristown, NJ 07960, phone 973-455-0700, fax 973-455-0273. The service technicians stated that they found no faults in the system diagnsotics and taol us that we would have to wait up to a month before the bms of na field rep could stop by and render a decision. My wife was very shook up and concerned that she could not control the car on turn it out of harms way of the vehicles on the road in fraont of her. She has been driving for almost 40 years with a perfect driving record.
