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.

There is a message reading passenger restraint system malfunction. I found out it is the seat sensor in the seat that turns the airbag on and off when someone is sitting in the seat, so the airbag is always off regardless if someone is on the seat or not. I know there was a recall with a bunch of other 2006 5 series but the dealer is saying mine is not included. I believe the 2006 M5 should also be included in the recall if it is having the same issue as the other vehicles in the recall.
