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.

During my car driving on the high way in Georgia (December 2015), the car had a hybrid system malfunctioned. This caused all of the warranting lights to come on in the dash and the hybrid battery stop charging. All of the electrical components are powered by the hybrid battery. When the battery was depleted, all of the electronics in the car stop working as I was driving, to my mothers house. The dash would not show my speed (nothing showed on the dashboard), my steering wheel was harder to turn, and there were no lights at all in the car. This is a safety concern, considering I had my wife and 2-year old child in the vehicle at the time. All of the electronics in the car completely stop working, except for the headlights, engine running, and wiper blades stayed on. During this situation, the vehicle was unsafe to drive, because there was no ABS, stability control, power steering, air bag, or any other electronic safety device. I called BMW of North America and was told that there is no warranty for the hybrid battery after the manufacturer warranty period (4 years), and there are no aftermarket warranty products that will cover the battery. The hybrid battery is $10,000. The BMW tech said that the battery was week and should be replaced. This should be a recall item (all of the manufacturers of hybrid vehicles cover their hybrid batteries for a period 6 - 8 years). This item not only affects the safety of the vehicle passengers, but also the ability for the vehicle to be used legally in the United States.

Since new, my car's steering has pulled dangerously to the right, such that my hands must remain on the steering wheel to keep the car driving straight, and if I let go and coast the car veers to the right and into neighboring lanes on a moments notice. Four alignments have been performed to the car by two manufacturer authorized dealerships, all of which have not remedied the problem, and have caused the problem to worsen, if anything. This problem does not only affect my model, the 2011 BMW 7 series, but 2010 and 2011 BMW 5 series as well, as there are numerous pages documenting same on internet message boards, to the extent that it appears BMW is aware of the problem, but that they are returning cars to customers after supposed repairs or after claiming that there are no problems at all by falsifying repair orders - only for the problem to remain, if not worsen. This is a dangerous predicament that needs to be publicized so people are aware. Please advise at your earliest and please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
