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.

2002 BMW X5 Owner Comments

problem #1

X5 SW 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission

The left front blinker light went out, bought the bulb to replace it, couldn't find a way, there are no instructions. Took it to a garage that checked the BMW site on line and discovered that the front bumper has to be removed and that it will take 1.9 hours to do so.That has to be intentional. I will not pay this much money for the bumper to be removed, etc, and I could get a traffic ticket for the violation, which in turn would affect my insurance.

It appears that in manufacturing, this could have been avoided because the head lights (adjacent) are easy to access.
