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.

Brake pads wear out within 35,000 klm on BMW X5. Not covered under extended warranty and the average for performance brakes like these are suppose to be 50,000 klm. BMW will not replace the brake pads without replacing all 4 rotors at the dealership level. All other vehicles with performance brakes on sports cars have lasted over 50,000 to 90,000 without replacement of brakes. We're not hard on brakes if you take a look at our last 2 vehicles with performance style brakes on sports cars...
