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.

2011 BMW X5 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 132011


  • 8,783 miles


The contact owns a 2011 BMW X5. The contact stated that while driving approximately 10 mph on a slight incline, he attempted to park. While engaging the brakes, the pedal depressed to the floor and the vehicle continued to accelerate. Suddenly, the vehicle jumped a curb and came to a stop. The vehicle was towed to two different authorized dealers for diagnosis, where both were unable to duplicate or determine the cause of failure. Also, an engineer inspected the vehicle and provided no resolutions. The vehicle had remained at the dealer for six weeks. The manufacturer was made aware of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 8,783.
