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.

Takata recall. Received recall notice in March 2016. Repairs not yet completed. BMW states they do not have the necessary parts. BMW states they are prioritizing repairs first for the hot and high humid us southern states. We are in Virginia which is a very hot and high humidity state during the summer. We are afraid to use the car until it is repaired. This is unacceptable.
