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.

2003 BMW M3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 242005


  • miles


Months after the purchase of the vehicle, the tire indicator light (to indicate a flat tire has been spontaneously coming on. BMW has not been able to find a reason for this, but they continuously reset the light only for it to go off again at a later date. The tires have been loosing air at times. This resulted in a double rear tire blow out on the ca I-405 at 80 mph which put me at risk and damaged my car. When the indicator light went off that day I thought it was just another failure and thought I had time to pull off in a safe place to look over the car. I was wrong. This has cost me time and money as I have had to re-arrange my schedule a significant amount of times, and cancel patients. This problem has been occurring for a little over a year while I have had the car. The 405 incident was in Sept of 2005 but the problem dates back to much earlier but an exact date is unknown at this time but could be determined.
