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.

My 2007 BMW 530xi's automatic transmission slams as down shift from 2nd to 1st gear. This happens during stop and go traffic and when the transmission gets hot. It felt like I got rear ended every time. The car jerks so hard, it feels like I got whiplash. My wife refuse to drive the car and think the car has brake defects. I went to the dealer at least 5 times and still no resolution. BMW offered 2 software updates and it did not fix the issue.
