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 four separate occasions, while driving on New Jersey roads (two times on major roads) my vehicle struck a pot hole and the inside portion of the rim bent. I have replaced the rims with aftermarket aluminum alloy rims. According to wheel collision experts of allentown pa. BMW rims are there biggest customer. I have been driving in N.J. for 31 years and these are my first rim failures. I still have three rims available for inspection. These failures occured with only 22,000 miles on the car.
