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.

2008 BMW 335 Owner Comments

I own a 2008 BMW 335I 4 door. There is a malfunction with front passenger air bag and sensor/control module. It was a recall issue that BMW notified this Agency of on 12/11/13. The NHTSA campaign # is 13V-564. Components: Air bags frontal seat sensor/control module. The problem is that according to the research done, BMW did not include my model year in the recall. They acknowledge it but did not formally issue the recall on my model year. Now the BMW service shop wants approximately $2800 to fix this issue that is their fault. They should repair the faulty equipment at no cost to me as the consumer. The mfr's report date: 11/8/13. I would like BMW of North America to correct the faulty equipment/components at no cost to me. The consequences are that the system will fail in the event of a crash, deactivating the front passenger air bags, increasing the risk of personal injury and even death. I was told the sensor communicates the weight of the passenger for the car to deploy the air bag at the correct speed and pressure, if the airbag does happen to work, but most likely will not due to the malfunction. This is unacceptable and the NHTSA should enforce BMW to recall all models this issue impacts. Per the article: "in 2008, BMW recalled 200,000 vehicles due to a similar problem, but did not recall these vehicles at that time. BMW said it did not recall the additional 77,000 vehicles recalled this week in 2008 because "they had significantly lower warranty claim rates." This is unacceptable!!
