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.

Today while exiting the highway my drivers doors unlocked and opened by itself. I was able to close the door. Once I pulled away from the traffic light it opened again. It really scared me. I've done research and realized that this has been an ongoing issue. Please do a recall before some gets hurt.

** VIN should have been included in NHTSA recall #12V504000. I have the exact model, year, options, and date of manufacture as the vins that were included. A mistake has been made. NHTSA, please help!!*** *just like all vehicles included in NHTSA recall #12V504000, my 2006 BMW 750li is equipped with "comfort access" and "soft close automatic." *just like the cars that led to NHTSA recall #12V504000, my (driver's) door appears to be closed. Then, unexpectedly, the door opens while the car is in movement! this is a serious safety issue. Was denied the recall fix today at the dealer. Called BMW customer care, and they told me that my VIN was not included in the recall batch...but -- the troubling part -- they could not explain why. *there is no reasonable explanation why my VIN was omitted from this recall. A mistake was made re: NHTSA recall #12V504000 that requires urgent attention and correction: Some vins were omitted from the recall that should have been included. *NHTSA, I'm counting on you. Please help!

Vehicle had indication of passenger mat sensor failure. Spoke to dealership with no luck on coverage. Called recall number and was told there was only a recall on vehicle for transmission going into neutral. Vehicle was serviced at dealership for water pump failure a few months ago and I asked about recalls and was told there were none for my VIN. This is the 3rd thing to fail in less than a year of purchase. 1st was door actuator failure, 2nd water pump failure, and now mat sensor.
