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.

2014 BMW i3 Owner Comments

problem #2

May 262015


  • 1,012 miles


A small piece of plastic easily punctured the tire and made it flat. The tires on the BMW I3 are prone to flats and easily get punctured. These are new tires by Bridgestone that have never been tested in other vehicles and there are lots of flats by owners on this specific car.

problem #1

May 212015


  • 950 miles
Getting out of a parking lot at very low speed of 2-3 miles per hour touched a curb and the tire went flat immediately that had to be replaced. 5 days later, a piece of plastic punctured another tire. Other tires would have deflected this plastic piece but the new BMW I3 tires are easy to get punctured and have flats. Manufacturer does not include spare or jack.
