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.

Cpsc#I1280311A. 2012 BMW X6. Consumer stated the vehicle does not have any audible or visual warnings that any of the doors or hatch back is open prior to driving. The consumer stated he was parked in a garage, when his key accidentally opened the hatchback. The key design was very poor, because at any time, the doors could open by themselves. As he drove out of the parking garage unaware the hatchback was open, he drove over a speed bump which raised the hatchback enough to impact an overhead concrete column which caused over $1800 in damage. According to the dealership, the consumer had to reach 5 mph before a warning signaled.
