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.

2007 550I BMW sedan jerky transmission** the transmission would act erratic at anytime. The vehicle would lurch while at intersections and stop lights. The consumer also stated the turn signal indicators were hidden by the steering wheel. The consumer had to look down to see if they were flashing. The consumer brought the problem to the attention of the dealer who claimed that this was the way the vehicle was designed.
