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.

This spring the right front (passenger side) sun roof drain hose came off while the car was sitting. Water poured down the front pillar flooding the electrical control box and putting approx. 2 " of water into the floor. (found this out after it broke down) the car was dried out and not knowing the cause flooded again. I read about this problem after looking on the internet and reattached the hose. Several days later my wife was driving the car through one of the worst interstate intersections in MA, RT3 and 93 merge, and the car lost power and stalled. She got the car to start again several times and eventually got to a safe place off the highway where the car was towed. First of all how is this design even allowed? BMW is well aware of this problem yet did nothing to try to correct this problem or notify us of such a poor design defect. (it took me 15 minutes to fix). The dealer wanted $2550. To repair. My wife and sister in law could have been killed.

The contact owns a 2011 MINICooper clubman. While driving approximately 40 mph and making a left turn, the steering wheel became difficult to turn, the accelerator pedal failed to respond, and all of the gauges on the instrument panel went blank without warning. The vehicle was driven to the dealer and powered off. The contact rolled down the driver side window; however, both front windows began to go up and down without warning until the contact removed the key fob from the ignition. The dealer diagnosed that the battery was faulty and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 35,861.
