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.

2004 BMW 330 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 042003

330 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 3,100 miles


Engine power failure and heavily distorted windshield on a 2004 BMW 330ci. Repeated failure of engine power without warning (twice in an itersection). BMW replaced eng. Computer, then installed new software after second incident. Rough idle and surging continues and gas mileage in city dropped to 12.6-13 mpg. Additionally the windshield is heavily distorted. BMW replaced it with an equally distorted one and the fse said"all 3 series windshields are distorted, worse on the X3". it is like driving in the rain without wipers. In both cases the BMW fse has stated the " there is nothing more to be done". this is the real BMW warranty service. This lemon is unsafe to drive.
