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 of front drivers side air bags. I received notice of recall over a year ago. I am still being told by BMW that the part needed to repair the vehicle is unavailable.. it is unacceptable and wrong to wait well over a year to have a recall repair! and I'm still waiting. I just spoke to the BMW dealership and was told again that there are no parts for the repair. I'd like to get this taken care of so please do something about it.

Takata recall hello, I'm at my BMW service center now (BMW of fairfax) to have service done on my car. I received notification of the takata air bag recall and notified the service center as to when I can get my air bags fixed. They could not give me a definitive time line. I went to the service center today to have regular service done on my car and again they could not give me an exact time line. They said, "maybe a year but we're not sure." I also asked if BMW is still offering their car rental program until the issue is resolved but the service center said BMW is no longer offering this. I'm concerned that the service center does not want to perform the work as I'm sure this is at a major cost to them.
