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.

BMW has an issue with run flat tire on certain models and continues to replace these tires, knowing that there is a safety issue with Goodyear Eagle LS2 tires. Having recently replaced 5 tires recently and a 6th tire two years ago the problem continues. BMW corporate customer service claims these are the tires for theses model cars. Out of six tires BMW did agree to replace two last December. They now say this is the tire for this car...luckily, no one suffered serious injuries with these highway blowouts occurred. No more BMW"S for me until the company admits they have a "problem" this is not a new problem and a recall should have been done months ago.
