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.

The rear turn signals repeatedly fail. The wiring is melted. While this issue is addressed in NHTSA campaign id number: 11V438000, my car is not included in the recall. The recall should be expanded to include more cars. I called BMW customer service. They are indifferent to this issue and completely unconcerned about the safety issues created by their negligent manufacturing. Thanks,
