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.

My bmx 5 (2004) stalls occasionally at low speeds. This has occurred 4 times in the last three months. The service center has been unable to duplicate the problem or determine the cause. I'm usually exiting a parking lot or school when it occurs and estimated speed is between 5 and 10 mph. There are no sensors or warning indicators before or after the incident and a diagnostic check at the BMW service center revealed no sensors or indicators activated. There were two recalls for BMW X 5 2004 models that were related to stalling but have not been associated with my particular vehicle. I'm concerned the problem will result in a crash.
