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.

problem #1

  • 3,800 miles


The service engine soon light comes on and the car will not accelerate and violently shakes. It is unpredictable. (the car is only 5 months old and had less than 4,000 miles on it when this began.) the dealer switched the spark plug, ignition coil and injector. Despite the dealer believing this fixed the problem it occurred again. The dealer then replaced the injector and again believed this fixed the problem but it did not. The dealer than replaced the dme. The dealer thinks this now fixes the problem, but I am not convinced. (this is a 335I, which is not an option I can choose for a BMW car.)
