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.

2012 BMW 528 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 242012


  • 9,000 miles


I ran over a pot hole, about 4" deep, and both passenger side rims were bent so bad that they have to be replaced. The tires also had to be replaced along with the electronic power steering module. Total cost of repair was $8,229 I previously had a BMW 750il 2008. I also hit a pot hole at about 45 mph and the front rim cracked and back rim bent. Both the rims and tires had to be replaced and cost over $3000. The bmws are just to heavy for the aluminum rims they come with. In over 40 years of driving I have never had a problem with rims until I started driving bmws, and I have hit a number of pot holes before. Someone should make bmws come equipped with steel rims. Their cheap rims are going to get someone killed.
