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 car has a recall repair about the brake vacuum pump leak. The dealer found the leak from the brake vacuum pump before did the recall repair, but only replaced the brake booster vacuum hose and leave the brake vacuum pump leak unrepaired and quoted me $2800 for repairing the brake vacuum pump leak. I called BMW usa customer relations and was told that I should continue to talk to the dealer and said it's the dealer decision. This seems not right for me since the root cause was not fixed for the recall. Please advice what I should do.
