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.

On Nov 29, 2010 I took my car into the dealership for standard maintenance as well as to investigate leaks that were occurring. The dealership notified me that there was a recall that they needed to performance maintenance on as well related to the brakes. Leaks were repaired, recall work (brake line and vacuum pipe) completed. On Mar 3, 2011 all power assist to my brakes failed while backing up and nearly collided with another vehicle. When I took this to the dealership they told me that it would be $1,000 to replace the master cylinder and brake booster. When I asked why this work wasn't performed when the recall maintenance was performed they indicated that it was not required. My worry is that other vehicle owners will be at risk due to incomplete maintenance performed by BMW with much more serious outcomes. I am struggling currently with BMW to convince them that this is all related (as noted in the recall notice) but not making any progress.
