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 2008 BMW 535I. The contact stated that the preowned vehicle was purchased in April 2010. The fuel pump failed. The owner was driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle cut off. The vehicle was restarted and taken to the dealer and the fuel pump was replaced. On June 2, 2010 the fuel pump failed again. The dealer replaced that fuel pump with a "new" pump. The dealer was delivering the vehicle back to the owner and the mechanic experience the same failure and returned the vehicle to the dealership. BMW decided to take a fuel sample from the tank to determine if the fuel was the correct. They also advised they had found debris in the fuel system. BMW stated that that they would have to take the fuel tank off and clean it at the owners expense of about $3,000 as this was not covered under warranty. The vehicle is at the dealership at the time of the complaint waiting for repairs. The current and failure mileages were approximately 44,000.
