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.

2013 BMW 328 Owner Comments

Roughly two months after taking possession of my new BMW 328I, I was driving on the freeway when my car suddenly and without warning lost all braking ability. The brake pedal was hard as a rock. Fortunately, I avoided an accident by coasting off of the freeway and into a hotel parking lot. My car was taken by tow truck to a service department at BMW, where it remains to this day. My service advisor initially informed me that only the vacuum pump needed to be replaced. A week later, however, I am told that the intake camshaft must also be replaced because it is badly damaged.
