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.

The contact owns a 2008 BMW X5. The contact stated the windshield wipers continued to move while the engine was off, and the vehicle also stalled without warning.

The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure and current mileage were 91,000. Updated 10/31/13
