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.

After pushing the start button I get this message (not an error, a message): "electric steering wheel lock may prevent engine starting. Move the steering wheel so that engine can be started." So the wheel locks itself all of a sudden I have to tow the car for no reason. Now dealer is suggesting to changing a part and some other dealer says it needs to be reprogrammed. Unbelievable. BMW doesn't even know the reason of this issue..

I have had three separate instances in a nine month period starting in may of 2010 of alloy wheels cracking on my 2006 BMW 325xit, which has run flat tires. The dealer said it is from hitting pot holes, curbs, or parking blocks. I find this to be very unusual as I live in a warmer state where there are very few pot holes, and I have not hit a curb or parking block. Moreover, in thirty-three years of driving, I have never had a single wheel crack on any car that I owned. I also own a 2002 BMW (that does not have run flats) and have never had a wheel crack on it. A review of the internet reveals complaints by BMW owners with run flat tires experiencing repeated wheel cracks. It appears that the run flat tires may not compatible with the wheels. Yet, nothing has been done by BMW to recall or correct the problem. This is a very dangerous situation and very expensive with the wheels costing $345 each to replace.
