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.

2013 BMW 650 Owner Comments

So the issue I'm experiencing happens while in motion randomly (driving) with my 2013 BMW 650 xi grand coupe. ! as I'm driving, the dash board and the BMW idrive displays all major malfunctions with my 2013 BMW 650xi grand coupe. Then my BMW proceeds to shake, slows down and then your unable to accelerate pass 20-30 mph. Within a min the entire car shuts down. It's very hard to steer once it shuts down because the car battery is completely dead & unable to give it a boost. It's very scary having a car powering down when you are driving on a major highway or major roads were you have huge tracker trailers trucks passing you by. It's very hard to cut several lanes of highway in a powerless car in order to get to safety ! this 2013 BMW 650xi grand coupe is terrifying to drive ! it has left me and my family in horrible situations to the point that one wrong move and we can possible die!
