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.

2006 BMW 325 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 172006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 20 miles


: the contact stated while traveling 40 mph on normal road conditions, the brake and steering lights illuminated and the vehicle jerked violently. Also, when trying to turn in any direction, a loud grinding noise was heard. An extended stopping distance occurred when normal braking was attempted. The vehicle was taken to the local dealer who determined the steering column was faulty and needed to be replaced. Also the brake pads needed to be replaced and adjustments had to be made to the tire pressure. The dealer performed the necessary work, but the problem persisted, and continued to jerk violently while driving. Updated 03/22/07 updated 03/30/07
