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.

  • 22,000 miles


BMW 2013 750li drivetrain malfunction re-occurring causing rough start and while driving highway 485 vanos solenoids & valve covers have been replaced three times within 7 months on my vehicle that has 22,000 miles. My full service warranty is going to expire at the end of 2016. According to recent reports BMW is aware of this issue on the N63 engine and should have a recall on various parts. The bolts that secure the housing for the variable camshaft timing adjustment (vanos) unit can loosen over time and may possibly break. The engine may have reduced power or stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.having the service bulletin number B001314, the recall may take several days for each vehicle involved and could include replacement of the fuel injectors, mass airflow sensors, battery, crankcase vent lines, fuel pressure sensor, the engine's vacuum pump and last, but certainly not least, replacement of the timing chain.. BMW in some cases will offer an extended full service warranty.

Arrived at a valet and thought the car was in park. It rolled forward and almost pinned a person in between 2 cars. On this car you must tap a tiny button to select park. There is no way to physically verify the position of the gear selector to see if it is in park, you must read on a screen in the instrument panel. Very easy to accidentally leave in drive. The same night a valet returned the car and accidentally put the car into reverse and got out. (naturally, they had pushed the selector all the way forward, which is the universal position for park except BMW).
