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.

2009 BMW 128 Owner Comments

I brought the car in for a electrical recall. Dealer did a recommended service check. Listed 3 major issues that should not be happening with a car that has 61,452. 1. replace oil pan gasket 2. replace oil filter housing gaskets 3. replace valve cover gasket. All of these issues due to oil leaks. How is it that a car built to last can have major flaws like this. This car is not driven on a racetrack nor driven in extreme climates for this to happen. The cost to replace these is over 2700 plus tax. It is my understanding that this issue is happening to many BMW owners and should be addressed as a recall.
