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.

problem #1

328 4-cyl

  • 12,300 miles
The I drive completely failed leaving the screen black at this time I had no audio, no hands free telephone no way to change any settings on the vehicle. Went to BMW dealership and was told it was an overtemp code and that BMW was aware that there were problems and engineers were working on it but at the time there is nothing they can do to correct the problem this car only has 12,300 miles on it and still under warranty. There were 3 other cars there with the same problem. All cars had low mileage. I feel this is a very dangerous situation that BMW is aware of but chooses to do nothing about it. I am also concerned that this could be a fire hazard.
