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 2013 BMW 528I. While driving approximately 2 mph, the brake pedal was depressed and the front driver side air bag inadvertently exploded without impact to the vehicle. The driver sustained severe bruises to both arms and legs. There was also upper abdominal bruising and stomach swelling that required medical attention. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the driver's side air bag was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Driver restraint /airbag system warning light on to no apparent reason. Dealer states that the car must have been in accident ,but only a minor scuff on the rear number was observed. Dealer stated the minor scuff has caused the system lights to stay on and will not cover the cost under the warrantee. Car engine on ,light remains on when stopped and moving.
