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.

problem #2

Vehicle slams into first gear upon deceleration and "slips" if you take your foot off the gas pedal and then accelerate immediately, as in traffic conditions. When transmission gets in stop and go traffic it will slam into gear before acceleration occurs. Car was at BMW dealer for seven days with all software upgrades that dealer suggested were performed and still same problem. No call backs to date. Spoke with BMW of North America and they referred me back to dealer. Unwilling to admit there is a problem with the transmission even though they have issued intercompany tech. Bulletins regarding the exact problem.

problem #1

Feb 212007

760 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles
- the contact owns a 2006 BMW 750. The vehicle has a transmission that should automatically shift the vehicle to the park position when the start/stop button is depressed. The contact depressed the start/stop button and noticed that the vehicle started to roll forward approximately 2 seconds after the engine lost power. He was able to depress the brake and stop the vehicle. The contact stated this also occurred approximately 2 weeks later. The contact parked and exited his vehicle, upon his return the vehicle rolled backwards approximately a hundred feet and crashed into a lamppost. The road conditions were clear on both occurrences and the vehicle was parked on a flat surface. The parking brake was not engaged. The dealer stated they are unable to diagnose the failure. The current mileage was 7,000 miles.
