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 dsc (dynamic stability control) and AWD (all wheel drive) module on my car (2006 BMW 530xi) malfunctioned. The dealer (budds' BMW in Oakville) said that the car was "not road-worthy" and that the part was on back-order, and that there were other cars brought in with similar problems and that BMW had issued a bulletin. I phoned BMW Canada but they refused to provide me a copy of the bulletin.
