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.

Drivers side front airbag seat mat sensor. Fault for driver side seat mat sensor. The passenger side seat mat sensor has been replaced under recall for the vehicle. However, the drivers side still has the error and I would like to know why the driver side seat mat sensor is not also covered under the recall for the passenger side seat mat sensor.

Drivers side front door failed to close or latch. The door had to be 'zip tied' to rear driver side door to get the vehicle home. I took the vehicle into the dealership for diagnosis and was told that the issue was due to a faulty door lock actuator for my vehicle which has comfort access and soft close doors. I find this to be a serious safety issue if the actuator fails that the door cannot be closed at all.

My complaint is with 2007 BMW 750li model. There is an energy parasite in the vehicle's electrical system. It has been narrowed down/pointed out as the "comfort access system" by other owners. This comfort access system does not shut-down completely when parked and drains the battery. Energy drain also occurs during the vehicle operation and the vehicle shuts down A/C blower frequently to conserve energy. It required me to jump start the vehicle on numerous occasions. I have taken the vehicle to BMW dealers on three different occasions and besides changing the battery, nothing much has been addressed. Even after new battery, loss of energy still persists. There are many complaints on the web regarding this issue. BMW would not proactively address the issue, unless the diagnostics system directs them to a specific area/areas. My vehicle currently is not pointing to any errors, so BMW shrugs away and asks me to live with it. In the meanwhile, it is an unreliable and unsafe vehicle to operate. Presently, the loss of energy is resulting in blower or other energy consuming device shutdown, and requiring a jump for vehicle start up. If this phenomenon gets worse, the vehicle can loose power completely during operation and shutdown, leading to a very unsafe condition, especially, on highways it can lead to fatal accidents. I would like this safety issue to be addressed by NHTSA. I am available anytime to provide any additional information. This issue has been reported to BMW dealers at mt. Laurel, NJ and alexandria, va, and customer service and is fully documented by them.
