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.

BMW advised me in July 2015 that driver side front air bag module has safety problems and they would replace it as soon as the parts are available. I called the dealer in san mateo, ca but they still do not have the part. Why are they sitting on it. BMW is liable for this problem.
