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.

Its two things. I think because of one failure, it has caused another. The electronic system and over voltage, the failure of the voltage regulator in the alternator, I believe has caused the problems with the drivetrain (automatic transmission, and the hydrolic braking system) I have noticed significant pressure loss when applying brakes. In addition to that, when coming to a stop the car jerks back and forth in while in 1st or 2nd gear, as if the clutch wasn't engaging. However I could get that to jerking to stop if I applied the brakes really hard. 3-D wouldn't jerk, however it would slam down into the lower gears when coming to the stop. The electrical problem started happening back in October. The trans, and hydrolic issues just started happening May 23, 2005.

Daimler Chrysler have issued a recall to all merc brand cars for a voltage regulator check and replacment. The Crossfire has the exact same system as the slk but has not been included in the recall, there are dozens of cases where the lights dim at stop lights and at idle where it is clearly down to the voltage not being regualted. DC have brushed aside my complaints.
