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.

Water pump issues, dealer supposenly fixed months ago. Car is like new with 40K + miles and already water pump replaced. Then noticed smoke & burning smell like possible fire from engine area a week ago while car in idle, I then took it to dealer next day and something wasnt replaced by dealer during water pump exchange/replacement. I think is a lie, I certainly think vehichle have that steering issue. Also passenger door from inside didnt open anymore which is a serious safety issue. But car like I said is like new to me for it to be 3 years old with 40K miles. Just major faults for such age of car. Bad BMW maker for pricey car and so many engine / electrical issue issues. I see why not many on us roads. 12/2015 something in water pump area replaced agian, driver passenger door from inside didnt open anymore, front cameras didnt operate anymore/corroded supposenly, coolant was gone (but water pump replaced 2014) so either leak or dealer was cheap putting back in, now since all these repairs car drives rough. And yes all was done on 1 visit at dealer. And I forgot to mention to them my seatbelt locks on me so I drive with it clamp already and just duck underneath strap when ready to drive. Windows go up and down on its own (state police witness to that)
