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 received a recall notice dated September 2014 from BMW regarding a defect in the front passenger airbag. I called my local dealer in ft myers fl on 10/28/14 to set up an appointment to get the repair done. I was told the part was out of stock and asked to leave my name and phone number and I would receive a call when it became available. Since I did not hear from the dealer I decided to follow up and called them on January 8, 2015. I was told the part was out of stock. The woman said they only receive small quantities at a time. Again, I was asked to leave my name and phone number and would be called when the part was restocked. How can BMW send out a recall notice asking you to call immediately to have the necessary repair performed as soon as possible when they don't supply the dealer with the part? I expected more from BMW. I certainly hope they do something to rectify the problem and expedite the repair!
