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.

2001 BMW 325 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 032004

325 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


The entire navigation system malfunctions as well as the air conditioner. The vehicle has not been to the dealer. Owner thinks the body of the vehicle is too low to the ground causing the navigation system to malfunction. When the consumer pulled into a parking space with a standard 6 inch high concrete block, he heard a slight noise at the front of the car. Once he started driving the car he noticed that the navigation system failed along with the air conditioning, speedometer, dash lights and dashboard gear indicator. Upon inspection the consumer noticed that the underside of the front bumper had caught on the block pulling and bending the front bumper. The consumer also noticed a device called the ambient air sensor located under the bumper was dragging on the ground, the wires were exposed and one of the wires was broken. Once the consumer reconnected the wires the navigation system came back in operation.
