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.

Bought car second hand from non franchised dealer with 6 month guarantee. First problem a failed injector not covered by garage - electronic fault. Then 3 months later engine gave a high pitched whine and after 30 miles no acceleration and finally blue/black smoke from exhaust. I stopped engine to avoid further damage. BMW disclaims all responsibility and makes no contribution to costs.
