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

My 2009 BMW 335I has a significant lag-time between when the gas pedal is depressed and when the car starts to accelerate. This is most noticeable when the car is at a dead stop. When I press the gas pedal, it takes about one full second before it lunges forward suddenly. This is a consistent problem which I can replicate every time I press on the gas pedal from a dead stop. This is very scary and dangerous, especially when I am trying to make a left turn, or when I am trying to avoid an accident. I have no control over how quickly my car responds to the gas pedal. I have noticed this since I purchased my car in August 2009. My BMW dealership and another BMW dealership told me that this is normal. I highly doubt that this is normal. This is clearly abnormal to me. Several bulletin boards on the internet also report the same problem.
