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.

2009 BMW 335 Owner Comments

Paint defect on new car, 2009 BMW, purchased on March 2010. The paint is pealing in 4 places. Car purchased new in March 2010. Manufacturer claims pealing is from a "external source". this is not plausible as pealing is in 4 spots, two different locations. Bmws own warranty vendor for body work indicated that is was "apparently a paint defect ".the BMW regional inspector said no, an external problem, denying what is obviously a manufacturing ( painting )defect.. BMW, offered, a "good faith" adjustment of 50% of repair cost but if it is a defect it should be covered in full as part of the warranty. Clearly a new cars paint on a BMW should not be peeling in a few months in 4 places and BMW should acknowledge and cover a paint defect.
