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.

The bottom part of the rearview mirror has become unusable. This is a safety hazard because it is hard to see the vehicles behind us only through the top part of the mirror. It is a auto dimming rearview mirror, and, judging by the postings on the internet, it is a common problem with this type of mirror in bmws. Replacing it outside the warranty period costs $425 plus tax for the part, not including labor charges. We have had many cars over the years and we never had any trouble with a rearview mirror; we expected better from BMW. We contacted BMW and they said that because the car is outside of the warranty period we would have to pay for it unless BMW is forced to issue a recall for this problem.
