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.

On my 2001 BMW 330ci the passenger fuel tank trap has broken off. My fuel tank was hanging half way down almost touching the floor.

An accident occurred when I was driving on the highway. The metal strap that supports the passenger side of the fuel tank failed; the bracket to which the forward end of this strap mounts to, has broken free from the underbody. The strap and bracket seem to be in good shape but it's the welds that hold the bracket to the underbody has broken. When the bracket broke free from the underbody, it dropped to the ground while still attached to the strap and dragged on the road making a very loud metal-dragging-on-road screeching noise. The fuel tank now has dropped about 3 inches down almost touching the ground, the fuel tank could break into two if it drops all the way to the ground and spark a fire. This is a major safety issue, welds for fuel tank straps just do not randomly pop off from the car, what if I were in an accident and the fuel tank broke free and became punctured, I would be fried to a crisp.
