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.

2006 BMW M5 Owner Comments

Headlight went off while driving, when I went to replace the bulb discovered that all the wiring inside the headlights have the insulation crumbling off causing exposed bare wires to short together. This is unacceptable on a car that is only 7 years old. I researched on the internet and found that is a common problem on bmws. If your warranty expired BMW will not fix it. This is especially dangerous at night went the headlight start to flicker on and off.
