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.

X5 6-cyl Diesel

  • 17,350 miles
While driving at 70 mph on the freeway, my sunroof spontaneously shattered into a million pieces. No other vehicles were around and no falling debris was nearby. The sunroof exploded outward with a loud bang, like a gunshot. Glass rained down inside the car and my passenger and I were cut while trying to remove pieces of glass from the interior.
