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.

"takata recall" BMW sent me a notice of recall: Driver's front air bag module in March 2016, however, until now 10/20/2016, the local dealer never call me to replace the front air bag. Another problem: I smell gas coming out from the fuel tank when parking in the garage, however, I can not find any leak from the gas tank. I feel my BMW X5 V8 2009 may be caught in fire if I drove long distance and the car heated up.

I got a passenger restraint system malfunction: Fault in passenger-restraint system affecting airbag, belt tensioner or belt-force limiter restraint problem. This resulted in a red airbag light and red passenger belt to come on the dash and idrive. The passenger restraint system and belt tensioner is said to be bad. This time with a red airbag light on all the time, and the seat belt unbuckled light on as well.
