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.

2007 BMW 525 Owner Comments

problem #1

525 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,718 miles


The contact owns a 2007 BMW 525I. Whenever the contact places a cooler or anything that would possibly leak through the carpet in the trunk of the vehicle, the liquid builds up in the tire base where the main wiring for the electrical module is located. The failure eventually causes the wires to short circuit. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not serviced. The current mileage was 5,918 and failure mileage was 5,718.
