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.

problem #1

Jan 022015


  • 141,000 miles


The contact owned a 2005 BMW 745li. While driving approximately 55 mph, the vehicle stalled and the check engine failsafe mode warning light illuminated. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the alternator housing failed. The vehicle was repaired. On another occasion, while driving 35 mph, the steering wheel veered to the right causing the contact to lose control of the vehicle. As a result, the contact crashed into a bridge through the railing and into a pole. A police report was filed. The contact sustained unknown injuries that did not require medical attention. The vehicle was destroyed. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 141,000.
