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 engine vehicle power died down while driving in the middle of the road, this occurs 4 to 5 times within 20 minutes time duration, I have to put the car emergency lights on for 4 separate times within 20 minutes duration, and almost got hit by the cars from behind the vehicle. Prior to this incident, about 2 weeks ago, the driver side mirror was not working, for over 5 minutes I was trying to adjust the mirror through the controls but mirror was not responding and unable to do so, while I was merging the freeway, I cannot see the truck behind me while merging the busy freeway, and almost got hit by the truck. Roseville BMW was unable to diagnose any problems with vehicle and they want me to take back the car to drive. I don't feel safe driving this car again, I'm requesting a new safe working car, roseville, ca BMW refused to provide another vehicle as replacement for this defective car.and now, this problem is being reported to BMW of North America corporate office, hopefully, BMW North America corporate office is taking care of the problem and their customer needs for safety on the roads.
