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.

I was driving on the insterstate and the car lost power and would not start. The car was towed to the dealership and required a new fuel pump which cost $1,135.13. Prior to the problem, the gas mileage decreased although the car had been tuned up by the same dealer. The car had approximately 122,000 miles. A request was made to return the old part.

I was driving my 2004 BMW 330ci when suddenly without any warning my engine stopped working, which resulted in no engine power, no power brakes and no power steering. It was a very dangerous situation. It was towed to the nearest BMW dealer where the fuel pump was replaced.
