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.

2002 BMW 745 Owner Comments

problem #1

There have been many occasions when the doors on my 2002 BMW 745 have frozen closed after driving to a destination. This could have resulted in a serious problem had we been in an accident and not been able to exit the car. Myself and my passengers could have been trapped in the car. I have also had occasion when the door would not latch after driving to a destination. I have made numerous complaints to the dealer and have been told there is no solution to this problem other than spraying the door latch with silicone. This only works for a short while and is ineffective if very cold temperatures follow within a day or two of rain or having the car washed.
