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.

2009 BMW M3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 152009


  • 2,500 miles


We were driving our 2009 BMW 335I on fwy 5 South at about 65 mph, the check engine warning indicator illuminated on the instrument pane. It sputtered and stalled repeatedly, we have to drive really slow to get home, next day I got it in authorized dealer, the technician stated that the fuel pump contributed to the failure. The fuel pump was replaced this happened to my 2 times, this is a very unsafe problem could cause accident if we in a mid of passing other car on fwy. The government should require BMW recall all vehicles with this pump, this seam to be the ongoing problem with 335I sean 2007 and BMW still didn't fix it, this is new 2009 BMW 335I only have 2500 miles on it.
