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

problem #1

Z4 6-cyl

My rear rims have developed cracks while driving resulting in quick loss of tire pressure and in some cases destroying tire. This has happened to both the left and right sides, however thus far has always been isolated to the rear (model 296 19") rims. In the 16 months I have owned this vehicle, this has happened several times including on 5/11/2012, 9/9/12, 4/12/13 and 5/23/13. Each time I have purchased a new rim or had the existing rim repaired at the discretion of the dealer. In none of these cases has there been any impact or driving condition that explains the failure.
