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.

2013 BMW X1 Owner Comments

Since I purchased the vehicle, I complained to BMW about a filmy fog collecting inside thr windshield of the vehicle. You could thoroughly clean the windshield, and within 2-3 days, the film would return. This would cause difficulty seeing through thr windshield, especially at dusk and dawn. I cleaned my windshield continuously for appx 1.5 years, all the while complaining to my dealer and BMW corporate. I was told numerous times that there was no way to measure how much buildup on a windshield caused a safety hazard, so there was no recall or anything BMW could or would. Since I mainly drive at thise hours, it was a daily issue for me. So, with reluctance we were forced to lose money and trade the vehicle in for another brand.........after numerous attempts to have BMW to look into the issue.
