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.

2009 BMW Z4 Owner Comments

I am leasing a 2009 Z4 BMW, the engine car stall while driving this happened twice in a period of 2 weeks, I almost have a car crash behind in both opportunities, thanks that the traffic was very slow, the second time I have to go out the road. I brought the car the for service, they were able to reproduce the failure, after one week at the shop they say it was a computer failure, they replace the computer however after 2 weeks the car still in the shop I have call several times to customer service and the service shop but I don't get any specific answer of what is going on, I feel I don't have any rights as a consumer and in the other hand I am concerned for my safety since they said they don't guarantee this won't haven again even if the car is fixed. Do I have any rights as a consumer or I have to accept this situation.
