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.

BMW refuses to let me out of my lease but do not want to fix the defect because the parts are out of stock for several months. I have a small child and am afraid for our safety.

Takata recall. BMW did not make me aware of this dangerous airbag recall. I was in the process of transferring my lease to another willing party when BMW notified me of the recall issue and blocked the lease transfer which they had previously agreed to. They also will not let me purchase the vehicle. Both these issues breach the lease agreement I signed with them. The car is unusable with such a defect and is likely to take 6months or more to fix. They offer no time line to fix the issue and request that I sign a waiver accepting an inferior rental care during the period it takes for them to resolve the issue and assume the cost and liability of storing the unusable BMW. I either want BMW to fix the issue immediately, let me cancel my lease with no penalty.

On February 7th, 2016 at 3:15 am, on my way to work in the intersection between forest hill and military, a drunk driver traveling West bound while I was heading East drove into my lane, hitting me directly. After this head-on collision, the driver decided to flee the scene, leaving me stuck inside the vehicle in pain. I was lucky enough to be alive. The airbag inside of my vehicle did not deploy leaving me with excruciating pain in my neck, chest and knee. I could not breathe or talk, I was rush to the wellington regional hospital. I was approaching the light and I was going to turn left on military trail, the guy who crashed onto me was coming from the North on military trail trying to make a right onto forest hill blvd, but took the lane heading East instead of the one heading West. He was driving really fast while I was approaching the light to turn left.
