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.

Oct 152009

Cooper 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 54,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 MINICooper. He stated that while driving at 45 mph when he leaned forward to adjust himself on the seat, the seat broke and went all the way to the back. The vehicle was then taken to the dealer who stated that the vehicle no longer had any warranty to repair. The contact had the seat welded so that he was able to drive it. The failure mileage was 54000 and current mileage was 61419. Updated 05/06/10. The consumer stated his wife was driving, when she almost lost control of the vehicle when the seat collapsed backward. The passenger side seat has no lock forward and the consumer was almost thrown forward into the windshield. Updated 07/14/10.
