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.

Not only did I have to replace the radiator, but the coolant fan and the few other parts. By the time it was all said and done it was over $3,000. A few months later, the clutch went out. Come to find out that the "carfax" I received on the car prior to buying was worthless, as the car had been wrecked and the left front end had issues. It also had electronic issues with the ac/heating interior control unit also quit at the same time the radiator quit working. I will never buy another BMW.
