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.

2006 Mini Cooper Owner Comments

problem #1

I have heard from more then 3 dozen other individuals owning both the MINICooper and MINICooper S ranging from years 2006 to 2010 that there have been problems regarding the air cv joint axel and/or power arm control a constant problem regarding the general module electronic component. This isn't just a coincidence and may end up being the cause of serious accidents if one or two of these components are defective. For this many consumers to be having the same issues, same sounds and revisited visits to MINIdealer shops around the globe something is not right and needs to be investigated. I know for one thing this control arm is a huge problem if it fails considering it's location could be the cause of many serious accidents and possible deaths depending on the speed and severity of the accident when it takes place. My vehicle is currently not on the road due to the severity of the noise and reaction to the vehicle when being operated and it is a scary thing. They want to charge a absurd amount of money to fix something that quite frankly may have been something recalled a long time ago, and wasn't because a lot of consumers are not aware of this process such as myself until recently when an attorney friend of mine started to dig around a bit after hearing my story and the stories of many others I have spoken too.
