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.

Traveling between 5-10 mph, transmission would not shift correctly. Was jumping back and forth between 1st and 2nd gear for about 4 to 5 seconds and never engaging the clutch in either gear. This has happened several times over the past 2 months.

Driving slowly about 10mph and turning, transmission shifted into neutral by itself while shifter shows car was in drive. Transmission is the BMW smg (sequential manual gearbox).
