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.

While driving in a parking lot at approx. 3-5 mph, my 2005 530I suddenly accelerated while my foot was on the brake. I pushed on the brake pedal as hard as possible to slow the vehicle, then quickly shifted the automatic transmission into park and turned off the key. I took the car to the BMW dealer where I bought the car. They were unable to find the problem, so they have brought in engineers from BMW North America to analyze and fix the problem.
