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.

Left side of the center dash trim continues to pop off. Occurs every 4 months at $40 a repair. Repaired 3 times; once under warranty and twice out of warranty. The trim pops out on its own, however the BMW dealership continues to state that excessive force is causing the problem. That is not the case. This is not a characteristic to expect on this class of vehicle. An owner should not expect to maintain the dash trim.
