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.

The seat belt indicator and air bag indicator lights have been intermittently coming on whether or not someone is in the seat. Now the air bag indicator light is always lit and the seat belt indicator is still intermittent. I spoke to the dealer we bought the car from and they will not test the condition under the warranty. We purchased the car on 12/22/2012. It will cost over $100 just for them to tell us if there is a malfunction. Sounds as though the repair will cost well over $1,000. From research on the internet, it sounds as though this is a common problem and BMW recalled the BMW models for a similar issue, but MINIwill not fix this known problem. I feel this is a safety issue as we do not know if the airbag system is working properly or not. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
