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.

The contact owns a 2014 BMW X3. While driving 30 mph, the brakes failed when the brake pedal was depressed. As a result, the contact swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid rear ending a vehicle. The failure recurred twice. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed, but the technician could not find a failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 29,000.

It's winter I was wearing ight ll bean boots. Came to a stop sign put right foot on the brake pressed on the brake to stop and the car accelerated the harder I pressed the more it wanted to accelerate.I realized that the accelerator and brake pedal are close together and at the approximate same hight from the floor. I purchased this car yesterday. I called the dealership I purchased it from as I had another issue with the finance papers, I had also sent them a email explaining what happened. The finance person was aware of my email and told me the same thing happened to him moving cars in the lot he actually ran into the back of a X5 because of it. He recommended putting a piece of wood on the brake pedal to raise it from the gas pedal. My concern is this is a safety issue and someone is going to get badly hurtby not be able to stop and going into a intersection with flowing traffic.
