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.

2011 BMW 535 Owner Comments

2011 BMW 535 X-drive pulls to the right after going straight for a little while, very similar to all the other complaints about 2011 5-series BMW. Also jerking forward after cruising at a low speed with a slight acceleration pedal movement. 2 BMW dealerships I visited are clueless how to fix it. Although some owners (according to online forum discussions) were lucky to fix it with a special S/B procedure issued by BMW. But BMW does not inform all their authorized centers properly about this problem. And if you are unfortunate enough to get into one of those uninformed dealerships you will get a "normal" excuse etc., multiple attempts to align the car, refusal to acknowledge the problem- anything but fixing the car properly.
