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.

I called BMW but of course it is out of warranty. I know we are not the only ones experiencing the problem and I wish a recall had been issued. The steering grinding and rough driving happened three times in 2 months. After a few minutes it stopped, but we took it into a BMW dealer anyway and they say the power steering pump needs to be replaced. We bought a BMW thinking we would get a lot of mileage but it is starting to nickle and dime us to death. Will never buy another BMW again.

Somehow replacing pump with new model of pump doesn't necessitate a recall. "The Ultimate Money Pit" Huge disappointment. Please see my numerous other costly complaints. Never again will I buy a BMW
