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.

2009 Mini Cooper Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 292011


  • 11,900 miles


The contact owns a 2009 MINICooper. While driving approximately 60 mph the headlights did not have sufficient illumination range. The dealer was contacted and stated they are required by law to illuminate that way so other drivers are not blinded. The contact had not experienced a failure but was concerned about the illumination range. The contact stated that they do not illuminate far enough to see in front of him. The VIN was not available. The current mileage was 11,900.

I filled out your safety complaint portable from but could not submit it. When I used the link on the pdf form, it told me there was no such address, and when I used the link in the covering E-mail, I repeatedly received the message "file selected is not a portable form!." is there another way to submit it?
