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

Apr 022004

330 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 50 miles
The car (2004 330I zhp) often shudders at start up with an erratic idle and continues to do so even when warm. There are no computer fault codes and no check engine light. It feels as if it is ready to stall at any given time with severe idle fluctuations of 100-200 RPM's during stops. Problem is widespread across dozens of zhp (performance package) owners as well as many 2003 and 2004 3 series car owners, particularly those with manual transmissions.
