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.

I just bought a brand new 2013 MINICooper last year on November 2012. Sometime during last week September 18, 2013, I drove home from work turn off my car but the key wouldn't release. I have to press many times for it to release. The next day heading out to work, start the car but the gear shift got stuck. It wouldn't shift to reverse. I call the dealer to make an appointment to see what's wrong with the car. The MINIdealer called to notify that they will need to stay overnight as if they said they are waiting for one part to come in. The next day the dealer call me to advised that coffee had leaked into the gear shifter and cause the failure. And told me it will cause $1,500 for parts and labor to fix it. They told me that the warranty won't cover it, it will come out from my pocket. So I told them not to do anything, that I will come and pick up the car.
