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 2005 BMW 745li. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer to be repaired for the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number: 10V446000 (service brakes, hydraulic:power assist:vacuum). While having the vehicle repaired, the contact was informed that the seal on the vacuum pump was leaking into the engine instead of the brake booster, as the recall stated. He was then informed that repairing the vehicle under the recall would not repair the actual failure and additional repairs outside of the recall would be needed. The vehicle was not further repaired. The failure and current mileage was 61,000. Updated 02/10/11 updated 08/22/11
