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.

  • 16,000 miles
After only 16,000 miles of use, the windshield first appeared to be completely "sandblasted" with tiny indentations. When driving into the sun the glare becomes so intense that you can no longer see the road. You effectively become blinded and certainly would not be able to react to an emergency situation. The same situation occurs at night when driving towards oncoming headlights. This particular vehicle is rarely driven on highways and is always garaged. BMW does not consider this to be a safety issue, will not replace the windshield under warranty and cannot guarantee that a replacement windshield will not perform in the same manner.
