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.

Facsimile from senator on behalf of constituent, regarding brake failure of his 2003 BMW 745I. Constituent is asking for review/investigation of BMW of san francisco and the BMW 7 series automobiles. The consumer stated the brakes failed while driving 55 mph. The consumer stated a message flashed on the dashboard which said warning-brake-fluid- please stop safely. Shortly after that reading, another message flashed brake failure. The consumer had the vehicle towed to the dealer. The consumer was informed that the previous dealer neglected to tighten the caliper bleeder screw. This allowed all of the brake fluid to leak out. The consumer struck a stationary object as a result of the dealers negligence.
