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 vehicle air bag system does not work due to a defective passenger seat occupancy sensor. It is a documented issue with BMW and they are denying coverage for my particular VIN

On the dash board the loud warning light comes on: Driver restraint system fault and passenger restraint system fault. I know that several 2002-2008 BMW 7-series got recalled regarding the same issue and manufacture offered 10 year warranty from in service date regarding this issue. Mine is a 2004 745li and should be one of the recalled one. Called the manufacture and they sad the VIN number that my car has never have been recalled with this problem. The problem is on and I think the manufacture should take care of it. Is a shame to spend so much money for this vehicles and they can't offer a safe drive. Thanks
