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.

In 2010 the sunroof went bad I talked to a BMW dealer and they told me they have problems with them, in August of 2011 I noticed that my tail lights and blinkers were not working proper, nor was my horn, and the drivers window regulators are binding up, also a brake hose from my brake booster to the engine is collapsed in two spots. ??

The contact owns a 2003 BMW 325I. The contact stated that the vehicle would exhibit an abnormal grinding when the brakes were depressed. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer and they advised that the brakes and the rotors failed. The brake sensor light never illuminated to warn the driver that the pads needed to be replaced and the dealer was unsure as to why the warning light never illuminated. The failure and current mileage was approximately 84,000.
