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.

Facsimile from senator bob corker on behalf of constituent re problems with his 2007 335I transmission BMW. In Dec 2007, part of the manual transmission was replaced. The part known as the friction pad. The consumer stated there were multiple reports of the transmission failing and smoke wisping out from under the hood. The consumer stated he inhaled that material in its smoke form, not its dust form. He was also told, the slave master cylinder's fluid also produced additional smoke. The consumer stated he complained of an overpowering intense burning rubber smell as the first exposure. The consumer was also told, the seeping fluid was a possible cause of the problem.

  • Manual transmission
  • 3,100 miles
The contact owns a 2007 BMW 335I. When the clutch heats up the material burns inside the clutch plate, emits smoke and caused the contact to have breathing problems. The clutch disc was replaced; however, the same smell and toxic fumes have caused the contact to have permanent lung problems. The failure was repaired at 3,100 miles and recurred in July 2008. The contacts immediate concern was with the fumes that are inhaled. The current mileage was 6,000 and the failure mileage was 3,100. Updated 10/03/08 updated 10/07/08.
