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.

  • 54,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 BMW roadster Z4. The contact stated while driving 40 to 70 mph the steering wheel pulled to the right which made it difficult for the contact to continue moving in a straight line. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who inspected the failure and confirmed that the vehicle was functioning normally. The vehicle was also taken to another mechanic who stated the vehicle needed an oil separator to avoid a yellow liquid from forming within the oil. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 54,000.
