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.

2011 BMW 328I. Consumer writes in regards to air bag malfunction. The consumer stated after the vehicle was purchased, she noticed when driving at a speed of 10 mph or lower, applying the brake, or pulling into a parking space, the vehicle would surge forward unexpectedly. The consumer experienced the same surging for a second time, as she pulled into a parking space. The vehicle went over a curb and into some bushes. As a result, she received whip-lash to her neck and slightly bruised her elbows, knees and hurt her chest on the steering wheel. BMW sent an engineer to inspect the vehicle and concluded nothing was wrong with the vehicle. After picking up the vehicle a week later, the consumer and her husband continued to experience the same issue. A month later, the consumers husband pulled into a parking space when the vehicle unexpectedly surged forward and hit a parked SUV in front of him, which caused damage to the front bumper. The vehicle was returned to the dealer, where they kept it for two weeks. The dealer stated the vehicle was fine and it was ready for pick-up. However, two days later, the vehicle surged again, as the consumer was approaching a stop light. The consumer stated the vehicle has been inspected three times, without any success of finding the problem. The mechanism/gear would shift when driving at a low speed or riding the brake at a low speed when coming to a stop. Also, the vehicle sagged on the right side, which has been acknowledged by the mechanics, but it cannot be fixed. Updated 05/13/14. Updated 06/10/14
