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.

2015 BMW Z4 Owner Comments

I had a very frightening transmission malfunction on Saturday, March 7 in my 2015 Z4 (three months old). I was heading down a slope into a parking lot and stopped to pick up a ticket at the kiosk. The car was in drive and my foot was on the brake. Once I got the ticket, I took my foot off the brake and the car started driving backwards! I stopped immediately (luckily there was no one close behind me) and tried again. Same thing. So, I put it in park, then back in drive and it drove normally. Fine. From there, I had to go to the store. When I got there, I turned off the engine (and the key was in my purse) and, of course, it went automatically into park, as it always does when it turns off. Sitting in my parked car, I went to get some stuff out of my purse and with the engine turned completely off, before my very eyes the gear shifted from park to reverse and my car started moving backwards. I quickly hit the brake and put on the emergency brake. BMW assist came out to pick up the car and bring it in for service. Everyone agrees they have never heard of such a thing, but it is 100% true and scared the life out of me. I'm afraid to go back in my car, now.
