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.

A bubble appear on the side wall from an apparent road divot. Since that incident I have 4 more tires with a bubble in them all the same tire brand. I am to accept this because buyer beware applies here. The possible traffic dangers this may cause should it be buyer beware or NHTSA get involved and mandate tire manufacturers provide a warning to the buyer.

The car will not go straight. It keeps pulling to the right side, my 2012 535I has been aligned twice by BMW and can't correct the problem. My service advisor advised me that I needed to contact BMW of North America and address the issue to them.
