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.

1999 BMW 328 Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 272004

328 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 80,000 miles


The driver side pair and the rear passenger side window do not move. The "regulator" has been replaced more than once, and they simply break again. It is frustrating and at this point I have no plans to pay to fix the rear ones. I tell everyone how great the car has been...but for the windows...and that seems to be an understandable deterrent a purchase by many of my friends.
