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.

I have a 2009 bmw328xi, which I bought brand new and paid a lot of money for. I only have 59,000 miles. On August 3, 2013 the car temperature light went on, first yellow and not even two seconds later red. With out warning the car didn't move. So I shut off the engine immediately. Thinking the car is over heating. Instead, after getting it towed found out the water pump and electric thermostat went. I am very unhappy that a 4 and half year old car shouldn't have such problems. I've had many high end cars in the past for 11 years and never had a problem in such a short life of a car.

On Thursday, August 18, 2011, my 2009 328I shut down without notice in the middle lane of I-90 at mile marker 80.002 about a mile from ohare airport in Chicago. It was unable to restart and I was left to call 911 and spend 10 minutes waiting for dot to tow me off the middle of the highway and to a residential neighborhood to wait another hour for aaa to tow my car to perillo BMW in Chicago to assess the issue. June 15th 2011: About 3 hours after bringing my car into the zimbrick BMW service facility to have a set of after-market led lights installed at cost, the service engine soon light appeared illuminated on my dashboard. As I had never seen this light appear on my less than 2 year old car before, I immediately called the person who was head of your service department to discuss how this light could appear for the first time after having my car in hours earlier on a service appointment that should not have touched the engine. A loaner car was promptly driven to my office, to check into the issue and take my car back to the dealership for further inspection, if necessary. The following is the conversation that transpired between the service rep and I, upon his review of my vehicle, using a computer connection to pull data from my cars onboard computer system: Sa: when was the last time you filled the car with gas? me: (checking the odometer, as I reset it with each full tank of gas) about 97 miles ago. Sa: well, the computer is reporting the issue has something to do with your fuel pump, however, I think it might just be that your gas cap may have been unscrewed. Me: I can't say that makes much sense, as I filled it up 97 miles ago and haven't seen an issue until now. Sa; well, let me just turn the indicator light off and let me know if you run into this issue again.
