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 2006 BMW 525I. While driving between 25-30 and 60-65 mph, the vehicle stalls. The entire I-drive (computer system) freezes and the vehicle has to be pulled over and restarted. Currently, the stalling occurs weekly, whereas initially, it occurred every few months. The dealer keeps the vehicle for at least three days each time the failure occurs. The vehicle has been to the dealer five times and they have installed new software. However, after a month, the failure recurs. The purchase date was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 51,574.
