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.

I am reporting a design flaw with BMW and a major safety issue. I have had 2 oil separators go bad over the last 6 years. This issue has to be escalated from a "service bulletin" to a full blown recall. I this problem is not only a safety issue, but greatly depreciates the resale value of our vehicles not to mention the out of pocket costs due to repairs, lost wages, and towing to mention a few. None of us in good conscience could sell our vehicles in a midwest or northern climate and pass this problem on to the next owner - we need to unite and pass the problem back to the source: BMW.
