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 X6 Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 43 miles


While in traffic driving around 45 miles per hour at 8A on Dec 7, 2015 on GA400 my 2011 BMW X6 hybrid rear glass sparked with fire and shattered. The sparks were followed by a very loud booming noise. The defrost connector exploded apparently in the rear window causing rear glass to shatter. Pictures attached. You can clearly see where the explosion/spark occurred and where the damage started. Car is at dealer now and they have told me it is not covered. Issue is defrost failure. Car is under full factory warranty. The tint mostly held the glass in place. Problem after problems with this car. Hybrid battery replaced at 18K miles. Engine issues. Battery node issues. 43K miles currently. Purchased in 2013 with 3K miles on it.
