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.

2004 BMW 745 Owner Comments

I purchased a 2004 BMW 745 li from Lexus dealership in md, I drove to fayetteville, nc because im in the military. 1 week after being home at ft bragg I started the car in the morning and then the transfail safe light came on when I arrived at work. 4/12/2011 while driving to work in full heavy traffic the coolant light came on with a yellow indicator and told me to drive moderately. While trying to drive to a gas station the red indicator came on and told me to stop safely and this is while in traffic. This computer is always saying somethings wrong when its not and im afraid that when something is really wrong I wont know if it is legitimate. I checked the coolant level and it was full. Oil was a little low but no indicator came on for that. Started the car back up and it drove fine. There needs to be a recall on these computers in BMW cars. These computer problem can be a ploy to constantly purge monies from consumers pocket please help. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
