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.

My vehicle has a drivers side defective door latch leaving the door to occasionally not close properly and unexpectedly open. This is a critical vehicle component that is not serving its purpose causing potential loss of vehicle control or injury to persons inside and outside the vehicle. Due to extremely poor design my vehicles navigation/audio components are inoperable. Leakage of fluid from the trunk hydraulic shock down onto the navigation system has resulted in wiring system problems that may result in fire and or loss of lighting. I have maintained my vehicle since purchase with the most attentive and prestigious service. I am extremely concerned and disappointed that I am having these safety and poor design problems due to BMW defects and flaws. Last week I called BMW of North America regarding these 2 safety issues. I was advised to take it to by BMW service center for inspection and contact them upon doing so. Yesterday I contacted them in an attempt to forward the diagnosis/action plan and to my surprise not only was I refused the right to forward the paperwork but was also refused any remedy by BMW.

The contact owns a 2007 BMW 750I. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 15 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle restarted after waiting a few moments and then resumed to normal. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that the integrated control module needed to be replaced. An independent mechanic repaired the vehicle. On a separate occasion, the air bag warning light illuminated. The contact mentioned that the front driver's side occupant seat mat sensor failed which was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Drivers side front airbag seat mat sensor. Fault for driver side seat mat sensor. The passenger side seat mat sensor has been replaced under recall for the vehicle. However, the drivers side still has the error and I would like to know why the driver side seat mat sensor is not also covered under the recall for the passenger side seat mat sensor.

Drivers side front door failed to close or latch. The door had to be 'zip tied' to rear driver side door to get the vehicle home. I took the vehicle into the dealership for diagnosis and was told that the issue was due to a faulty door lock actuator for my vehicle which has comfort access and soft close doors. I find this to be a serious safety issue if the actuator fails that the door cannot be closed at all.

While driving at 25-30mph, the vehicle stalled losing all power including the power steering and having to coast into the breakdown lane. This is the second time in 3 months. After sitting for 15 minutes and 5-10 "no starts", the vehicle finally started and drove normally. The dealership is unable to replicate the event. There is a current power supply recall on several BMW models demonstrating the same symptoms. BMW states that the power supply on the 750li is different from those vehicles under the recall. This model should also be included as I have read several similar complaints on the BMW forums. This is a very dangerous safety hazard in which many BMW 7 series owners are experiencing.

My complaint is with 2007 BMW 750li model. There is an energy parasite in the vehicle's electrical system. It has been narrowed down/pointed out as the "comfort access system" by other owners. This comfort access system does not shut-down completely when parked and drains the battery. Energy drain also occurs during the vehicle operation and the vehicle shuts down A/C blower frequently to conserve energy. It required me to jump start the vehicle on numerous occasions. I have taken the vehicle to BMW dealers on three different occasions and besides changing the battery, nothing much has been addressed. Even after new battery, loss of energy still persists. There are many complaints on the web regarding this issue. BMW would not proactively address the issue, unless the diagnostics system directs them to a specific area/areas. My vehicle currently is not pointing to any errors, so BMW shrugs away and asks me to live with it. In the meanwhile, it is an unreliable and unsafe vehicle to operate. Presently, the loss of energy is resulting in blower or other energy consuming device shutdown, and requiring a jump for vehicle start up. If this phenomenon gets worse, the vehicle can loose power completely during operation and shutdown, leading to a very unsafe condition, especially, on highways it can lead to fatal accidents. I would like this safety issue to be addressed by NHTSA. I am available anytime to provide any additional information. This issue has been reported to BMW dealers at mt. Laurel, NJ and alexandria, va, and customer service and is fully documented by them.

Hid headlights and the amount of glare produced needs to be regulated by the government. I drive a lot of narrow county 2 lane raads where there are no right side white lines. I have to close my eyes sometimes when cars with these new headlights approach. I drive with regular headlights at safe speeds at night and have never felt the need for these flamethrower lights. I'm sure drivers with hid's love them but they are jeopardizing the safety of themselves and me. BMW lights seem to be the worst. The american made cars with hid's seem to be better.
