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.

2009 BMW 535 Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 10,400 miles


2009 BMW 335ix with 10,400 miles. Sudden high pressure fuel pump failure, causing immediate decrease in power, rough idle, and poor handling. Engine service icons illuminated. Car towed to dealer, dealer fixed problem, dealership service manager could not guarantee that it will not happen again as..."BMW is aware of these fuel pump failures. They are doing everything they can to solve the problem, but it has been a problem for several years now." The manufacturer should have to disclose this potentially dangerous condition and deal with it effectively... not with an extended warranty, but with the option returning the car until they fix the problem.
