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.

-----original message----- to BMW N/a subject: Regarding comfort access sys recall fm[xxx] to: Customer service recall letter no. 12V-502:rollaway to whom it may concern: Approximately 4-5 months ago I began have small unusual electrical problems. Where the car would not start, I had to repeatedly depress the start button, to have the car start. Next the remote door soft touch refused to work continuously, but the key fob would operate the door. While we were away I thought since the car battery was the original (installed in 07), I considered that perhaps power may have been the culprit and had aaa replace the battery while away form home. Recently 02/11/12, I had to take my 750 to the dealer because I had to drive home manually holding my drivers door closed. The soft close door would not latch. The dealer said it was because of the "comfort access system", and the part had to be replaced at a cost of $1200. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

While driving with my wife, I received an on-board light and symbol indicator. Stating that the passenger side airbag and restraint system failure. This is the very same sensor the (OC3 pass side matt) that was recalled in 2006 and 2007 models that had the OC3 sensor.

Own 2008 BMW 750 w/ soft close doors. Having the same issue as the 2005-2007 750S that have been recalled. At 35 mph, door flew open and I couldn't close. Sometimes it latches and sometimes it doesn't. cpo just expired 1 month ago. Dealer wants $ 1800 to fix. I know other owners w/ soft close doors - nothing but headaches. Considering the 2008 has the same doors as the 2007, I cannot imagine why the recall didn't extend to the 2008 also.
