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.

When the temperature hits 100 degrees as it does in the desert 5 months or so per year, the interior cabin fills up with very harmful gas fumes. We owned a 2008 and the same situation. As a result of this and problems with the fuel pump on the 2008, the dealership bought the car back. My husband really wanted another BMW and when he was looking at buying the 2010 he was told all the problems including the gas fumes had been resolved. Not so. The car has been back to service twice for the gas fumes and no one can shed any light on the situation. When this happens you cannot drive the car as the fumes will knock you out. The car has to sit on the driveway and air out for a few days. You can't park in the garage as the gas fumes enter the house. For a car of this caliber it is not acceptable. Plus it is very dangerous to your health.
