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.

Driving on 4 lane road at 40mph when 2104 BMW 335I xdrive vehicle experienced total failure-starting with the navigation screen then the entire dashboard went black and engine shutdown (all in few seconds). There was no shoulder (concrete curb) so vehicle came to stop in the right lane. Headlights were "stuck" on but nothing else worked including the emergency flashers! contacted BMW assist but they were unable to help but sent out police and tow truck. Car would not shift into neutral and was dragged onto a flatbed damaging the vehicle. This was extremely frightening! we could have been injured or killed as cars were bearing down on us then swerving as we could not warn them without emergency flashers. Before someone is injured/killed, this issue needs to be addressed starting with why does this vehicle not "fail-safe""--I.e., where the emergency flashers work and transmission can be shifted into neutral" thank you!!

Was driving in rain, stopped at a red light with start/stop enabled and in standby mode. When signal turned green vehicle struggled to come to life and stalled with message on I-drive saying drivetrain malfunction and after a few attempts to bring the engine back to life was able to drive through the intersection and pull over to the curb after which the engine would still struggle to idle and transmission refused to engage drive mode. Had the vehicle towed to the BMW service center and they said the low pressure fuel pump failed and replaced it and claim the issue is fixed.
