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.

2004 BMW Z4 Owner Comments

In the fall, 2010, my BMW 2004 Z4 stopped automatically opening and closing the convertible top. According to the mechanic there is a known problem with the motor associated with it. The main motor gets water trapped inside the plastic housing whcih causes the motor to fail. I need to replace the motor, as many other owners have. BMW knows of this problem and should do a recall/replacement with it's updated plastice housing of the motor. It will cost approximately $3000 to fix it. It is a known defect.
