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.

Zkw brand xenon headlights - the back of the projector bowl is made of plastic (vs. Metal in the al/Bosch brand, also used by BMW), which over time burns from the heat put out by the headlights. The burn turns the plastic from white to brown/orange, which severely reduces light output, making night driving dangerous. The headlight from my car is so poor that at night I can see the shadow of my car produced from cars behind me. Severe tire damage has been caused due to poor light.

Re defective braking/steering in a 2005 BMW, requesting a defect investigation. The consumer stated the vehicle pulled to the left or right upon stopping. In one case, the vehicle pulled so severely that it came to a rest at an angle on the road. The wheel could not be straightened until the brake had been released.
