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

We purchased the vehicle used late summer 2013. Upon having the vehicle inspected we discovered that both rear coil springs were broken. We were told by multiple resources that this is a common problem with BMW. We replaced the springs. I want to know why this is not a recall. Other brand/models with cracked/broken rear coil springs have had recalls. This is a safety issue. High speed cornering could cause springs to separate from vehicle.
