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 135 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 272009


  • 6,500 miles


While driving, my car all of a sudden lost power and began to shake. The check engine light went on and the car went into "limp mode". I toot the car into the dealership and the fuel pump had to be replaced. The car has only 6500 miles and is 4 months old. This is the second time this has happened. The first time occurred at two months old with 2500 miles. This is very dangerous being that it happened on the fwy with no warning, I had to immediately pull over and turn the vehicle off and then back on. This is unacceptable for a new vehicle. I had my family in the car when it happened the second time and now feel the vehicle is unsafe for my family. Please make BMW recall this problem. Extending the warranty on the fuel pump is not sufficient and the problem needs to be addressed.
