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.

There is a recall on the 2010 650I BMW the recall number is 10V4466000 for the brake vacumm pump leaking oil and upon speaking with someone at the BMW 800 number they indicated that this issue was VIN number specific. My argument against this issue is that if it was a VIN specific issue but other vehicles in that same year are affected then why would this not be an issue that is accepted by the dealership especially considering the vehicle has less than 100,000 miles and is less than a year old. This issue could cause engine damage which can cause a dangerous driving situation.

Suffered sudden engine stall in an expressway with no apparent explanation or reason last month. This was the second time this occurred. The first time was approximately several months earlier and after limping to a safe place and turning the motor off, resting for a while, it restarted. I had the vehicle serviced during its annual oil change and the dealer informed that the vehicle suffered an engine misfire in two pistons, allegedly due to two faulty coils. About a month later I suffered the second incident in an expressway but in heavier traffic. The motor was violently shaking and it could not accelerate so I was unable to change lanes or reach the roadside safety lane. The vehicle barely limped at about 25 mph. After managing to get off the road I turned the motor off and after waiting a while when I turned it back on it worked adequately. I took the vehicle to the dealer again who informed that it had suffered another engine misfire but in two other pistons, also allegedly due to two other faulty coils. I have been a BMW owner for 20 years and never suffered anything similar. The explanation given is highly suspect. This sudden and unexplained engine misfire and stall is extremely dangerous and must be investigated.
