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.

I have a 2009 528I. While going down the road my headlights when on lowbeams go out. The brights work but not the lowbeams the car control says lowbeam malfunction. First it was the left light and then the rightfront. I have not had this car long and its a wonderful car. But this is not safe and need to know if there has been any recalls for this or what can be done.

Unsafe equipment: Driver's side parking/running light stopped working. There were no indications on the dash regarding it's failure. This vehicle indicator light is integrated into the tail light lens assembly. Therefore making repair impossible for the owner of the vehicle. The BMW repair/service facility did not carry this in stock and as a result the vehicle was unable to be driven for 4 1/2 business days. Luckily I was provided a loaner vehicle since I was under warranty. BMW is aware of a defect in the tail light assemblies (sib 63 03 10) due to a rubber seal causing a chemical corrosion/leaking issue with the embedded led lights. I feel they should be replacing all BMW 1 series taillights that were exposed to the risk as a matter of safety and not differ the costs/risks to driver safety.

2009 BMW series 1 - tail lights don't work - replaced once and failed again. BMW knows there's a problem and stated that it might take several weeks to several months to get replacement lights.
