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.

My vehicles fuel consumption has worsened. Headlights flickers. Vehicle goes into limp mode often. Vehicle feels like it's choking or running on less cylinders. I have to constantly change my clock. Misfiring still occurring even after tune up. Loss of power. Waste gate rattle.

Car taken to dealer for rough idle and poor performance. Told that issue was with fuel coils. Paperwork states that coils need to be replaced. Deferred as one of the could had already been replaced. On way home car began to emit white smoke. Car unable to accelerate. High pressure fuel pump already replaced. High risk for accident for ultimately turned out to be 5 failed fuel injectors. BMW knows about this issue but will not address for recall. This is not an uncommon occurrence per multiple web searches.

I was driving home from the dry cleaners. As I was trying to merge into the freeway, the car check engine light came on with about a 70% reduction in power. I couldnt merge onto the freeway safely, and had to pull tot he shoulder. The car is currently at BMW dealer for repairs. It has been suggested that it is due to the fuel pump.
