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.

2007 Mini Cooper Owner Comments

problem #2

The wall next to the accelerator pedal is extremely hot to the point it can burn your foot. This is caused by the ac heater components when driving and running the air conditioner. The MINIcooper dealer does not have a fix. The only fix they had was a two inch insulated tube for the coil pipe. This did not fix the problem and they have no other solution. I have to be very careful not to burn myself.

Cooper 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3 miles
Under normal driving conditions, the car's center pillar area (directly adjacent to the gas pedal) reaches average temperatures of 115-120 degrees. I have burned myself on this area while wearing shorts, leaving a red welt. I've also jerked my foot from the gas pedal on several occasions when the hot surface catches me by surprise.
