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.

2014 BMW 335 Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 052014

335 6-cyl

  • 6,000 miles


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.

problem #1

Aug 152014

335 6-cyl

  • 100 miles
Sudden and complete loss of power while vehicle is running/moving (brand new 335I 2014). High pressure fuel pump malfunctioned(complete failure) while merging on to lane at busy airport gate ramp. There were no warning lights (check engine light) or partial loss of power but, I did get a total and complete loss of power with a sudden vehicle stop. Bus behind me almost run into me! the vehicle suddenly stopped and I was not able to re-start. After a while airport police came and help me move the car out of busy intersecting/merging lanes ramp. On this automatic vehicle, it is very difficult to put it in neutral, when engine does not start. (I was lucky that I was not in the middle of a busy freeway) BMW 335I had issues with fuel pump a few years back and it could be back again. This is a safety risk to drivers out there.
