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.

Takata recall - although my client was advised in March 2016 of the recall of the potentially life threatening front air bag module in her 2013 BMW, BMW has to date failed to replace the defect thereby continuing to expose my client to the potential risk.

I am losing $3000 on the value of this car as a trade in because the recall was not handled in a time-efficient manner. This is unacceptable.

Takata recall. I am having a difficult time selling or trading in this vehicle due to the recall. Nobody will take it and I am losing money because of it. This isn't acceptable in my opinion. I have never experienced this with Toyota, Lexus, Mazda or Nissan.

Very poorly managed BMW recall with the risk of major injury or death for malfunctioning air-bag. I called the manufacturer at the customer service number provided in the recall notice. I was told that there no estimated time for having the cause of the recall solved and it could be anytime around or past December 2016. They referred to me to my dealer to discuss available alternatives to drive the recalled vehicle. The dealers have limited resources to provide a solution for their clients to this recall. The consequence is that dealers are influencing the clients toward keeping their recalled vehicles and to be exposed to the risk to suffer major injury or death. The dealer told me that the recall resolution may take more than one year and brought the example that most of the BMW employees are keeping their recalled vehicle. The solution that the dealers offer is a limited number of loaner vehicle (only 10 in the case of the largest dealers in miami) and they have already run out of them. The other option for the client is to rent a vehicle from a rent-A-car company and the client will be reimbursed of the expense under a daily budget when the recalled vehicle will be repaired. This means that the client will have to pay both lease/loan of his/her recalled vehicle and the rental of another vehicle for probably one year. The manufacturer is putting the lives of bwm drivers at risk by discharging the responsibility to solve the recall to the dealers that have no enough resources to manage such a massive recall characterized by an undefined but for sure long resolution time. The dealers have no other option to try to have the clients keep on driving their recalled vehicle by offering alternative expensive solutions.
