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.

The contact owns a 2003 BMW 745I. The contact stated he was unable to access the trunk lid when using the remote or when manually attempting to open. In addition, the rear driver's side door would not close securely without exerting force. Also, the headlamp lenses illuminated dimly whenever activated at night, distorting the contact's vision of the roadway. The headlamp lenses were repaired by a dealer but the problem recurred. The vehicle was not repaired for the defects. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 45,000. Updated 7/10/13 the consumer stated the door was replaced by BMW. However, the headlight still needed to be replaced.
