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 428 Owner Comments

428 4-cyl

I was at a stop waiting to enter freeway, had my foot on the break pedal and my 428I started accelerating on its own. I was very scared since it would not stop and nearly rammed into the vehicle in front of me. I started honking so vehicle in front would move forward. I put emergency break (hand break) and car on park. Smoke was coming out of the sides of the vehicle. I'm so blessed to have been at a stop and not on freeway at time this happened. I did contact sos and vehicle was towed back to dealership where purchase was made. No update yet; service department is waiting on instructions from BMW. Major safety concern; manufacturer defect which puts many drivers and passengers at risk of an auto collision, injury, and death.
