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.

I have a Z3 2001. The car keeps stalls while driving. The BMW service department in columbus Ohio has been unable determine the problem and are unable to repair it. They said it was a fuel pump, then said it was the idle control valve then said they still do not know what is wrong with it.. they've had it on and off since May 6. (about one month). The car is unsafe to drive while stalling without warning. The engine light does not come on after the car stalls. I do not feel safe driving a car that stalls.
