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.

Car was purchased with an extended warranty for up to 100,000.I kept experiencing the car vibrating as well as the low oil light appearing within weeks of servicing the car was taken back numerous times and was told they could not find anything while car was under warranty. In July aprrox at 106,000 my check engine light appeared was taken only to BMW for solve the issue have paid over $3800 for repair and light is still on. Was taken on Friday Sept 18 and on Sunday Sept 20 the light is on again. Spark plugs have been changed twice with 2 months this cannot be right. The car apparently has electrical problems and is unsafe.
