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.

Takata recall - I received a notice in July 2015 stating that an accident could result in serious injury or death. I have been repeatedly told by the manufacturer that they will let me know when replacement parts are available. How long do I have to drive an unsafe car before it is repaired?

I was notified of recall campaign no: 15V-318 in July 2015. Driver side air bag needs to be replaced due to possible serious injury or death if inflated on impact. I have called the local dealership. Inskip BMW on numerous occasions and they say that they have not received the replacement part. If it is this dangerous, why is it taking so long?
