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.

Cooper S

This historical issue has plagued many drivers of MINIusa and many have reported accidents. Is it going to take the loss of innocent lives to have you force MINIusa do the right thing and include all of these known defects fixed?

Cooper S 4-cyl

  • 8,000 miles
My wife's 2006 MINICooper S convertibles airbag light stays on. This should be a recall, as I'm seeing. On the internet, that many owners of coopers and bmws have this same problem. Very much a safety issue and be advised that you are officially on notice, that this is a problem. Also a tire safety issue included.
