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.

The contact owns a 2015 BMW 428I. When the ignition was turned to the on position and while the vehicle was idling, the vehicle vibrated without warning. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the vehicle was operating properly. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 200.

I smelled a funny smell, and then the entire dash went black. A "engine malfunction" warning came on. I stopped right away, got out of the car just as it burst into flames. The entire incident happened in a matter of seconds.
