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.

BMW refuses to accomplish brake recall 10V446000. Stated campaign accomplished previously (several years ago) with another owner but very intermittent brake fail issue still remains, extreme hazard. Obviously wasn't preformed properly or issue still exists.

The contact owns a 2007 BMW 750li. The contact stated that the brake warning light illuminated and the brake pedal became hard to depress, which made it very hard to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The technician diagnosed that the check valve of the brake vacuum pump leaked oil into the brake booster. The dealer informed the contact of NHTSA campaign number: 10V446000 (service brakes, hydraulic). However, the VIN was not included. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 120,000.

As I was arriving to park my BMW I applied the brakes to put it into park but the brakes failed, in result the car drove threw the building. When the rear wheels reached the curbside/sidewalk, it stopped the car, causing the building to get damage. And I got a ticket for malfunction of brake but it is not my fault for the malfunction of the brakes because I just bought the car 3 months ago from a carmax dealer. And at that time the mileage was 46185. When I was checking online, and there is a lot of complains about the brakes in BMW. In one article it stated quote:"a check valve of the brake vacuum pump may leak a small amount of lubricating oil." It continued, ?over time this could result in the contamination of the brake booster. If this occurred, the power-assist braking could be affected." End quote.

I purchased my 2007 750I BMW in 11/2013. Shortly after I purchased it, I started having brake booster issues. The brake pad becomes hard to press and I have actually rolled in the middle of intersections because the car would not stop. I took my car in to BMW of dallas and was told that my brake booster was contaminated but my vehicles brake booster was "checked out" (not repaired) in 2011 and didn't have a problem "then" so BMW is not going to repair the recall now. I was told if I wanted the brake booster repaired I would have to pay for it and BMW is not responsible because in 2011 when it was "checked out" it was fine. I feel that BMW knows this is an issue and before I have an accident or kill myself they should honor the recall and "repair? my vehicles brake booster free of charge. GM is honoring recalls after issues caused deaths?..is BMW waiting for deaths to honor their recall??? that"S not good, not good at all!
