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

2001 BMW 325ci driving on interstate at 70mph one of the front breaks locks up due to the traction controls system violently turning on for no apparent reason. The result was the car swerving instantly about 6 feet into the emergency lane before I was able to fully regain control and the traction control system went in to error state. My mechanic stated this is a yaw sensor problem with this model BMW and he as seen it on several other vehicle. This is and extremely dangerous situation. It will be about a week before I can put this in the shop to repair.
