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 530 Owner Comments

problem #1

I own a 2007 BMW 530I. Water can get below the trunk of the vehicle where a rdc modular is located and cause the rdc to fail. This rdc failure in turn can cause your electrical system to fail. This happened to me and as of today, BMW only replaced the rdc, on my dime of course even though I have a cpo warranty. Water can come from clogged drains at the sunroof and other places. BMW knows of this issue and doesn't want to fix this issue. It appears to be a design flaw. After reviewing BMW forums, this appears to be an issue with many people.
