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.

If you are looking for a reliable, everyday commuting car DO NOT buy this one. I have only had this 01 525i for 8 months but it has given me so many trouble that I'm thinking about selling it. It runs well when taken good care of. But it just has so many little problems, not to mention the oil leak. So again if you are willing to pay for the performance then go for it, otherwise if you can't fix it yourself don't buy this car.
