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.

On the highway stuck in traffic going about 30-35 mph the car suddenly shuts off. This has happened 6-7 times now. 2 of those times I was taking a slow left hand turn it has died in the middle of the road with oncoming traffic almost hitting me. 2009 BMW 335D.

Car was running very bad both check engine lights came on with one blinking total loss of power. The car was taken to certified BMW dealer who replaced fuel injectors, valve and tuned it up cost 3500 didn't solve the problem they said it's gas to air ratio is not correct the car misfiring on all cylinders the BMW dealer wants to charge me another 1600-2700 dollars to fix it. After picking the car up after the first repaired I was back in 2 days later. Dreyer and reinbold is the dealership. Updated 11/24/2014

335d 6-cyl Diesel

  • 59,700 miles
2009 BMW 335D, egr cooler cracks open and starts fuming unfiltered diesel exhaust into the environment and into cock pit of car. Highly dangerous gas has severe impact to occupants, car could not be driven as exhaust smell inside of car. BMW refuse to fix this under below mentioned recall as it does not include the cooler. Recall campaign no. 11E-A03: BMW voluntary emissions recall campaign scr catalyst, egr valve and/or def mixer and ECU software flash failed exhaust cooler makes the car illegal on road as it exceeds emission limits and is impacting the environment and is a health hazard.
