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.

Transmission skipped, especially when coming to a was diagnosed and "repaired" by replacing the "mechatronics" in the vehicle. Now, it has occurred again, and they claim now that it is the failure of the door opening system, installed by BMW, that's causing the battery to "leak", therefore causing the transmission to malfunction..I don't understand the connection between the two items, and if so this could be extremely dangerous to myself and family. The car could come to a sudden stop at any time and cause us to go forward, and possible to do serious injury or death, or the battery could explode again causing serious injury. I would like to show you the records they provided to me, and be assured that this problem isn't one throughout their vehicles, like a bomb ready to go off at any time.
