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.

M3

M3 with dct automated manual transmission will not shift when at lower speeds going around corners. There is a long delay before it shifts so its dangerous when merging out into traffic. The car has performed this way since purchased and multiple software reprogramming has not remedied. When turning the rear differential makes a grinding noise. It started at about 1200 miles and continues at 5000 miles. The dealer put fluid in to remedy and said to wait 300-500 miles for it to go away. That was over 1500 miles ago.................
