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.

2003 BMW 745 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 092015


  • 70,000 miles


Bought 2003 745li new. Many problems from the start and often in for service. Driver side window motor quit working a year ago. Learned this is common with other blogs and BMW owners. Current miles are only 70,000. Over the past year the engine has run extremely rough even having to stop the car because of it. Occasionally has been difficult to restart. After three weeks in their service center BMW can't seem to figure out the cause but want to do $4500 of work in the engine while telling me they can't be sure that what they do will take care of the problem!?
