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.

After vehicle was warmed up a clanking sound started. Also, when towing a fifth wheel trailer, after and after traveling 100 miles vehicle shook like the rear end was going to fall out. Dealer duplicated the problem, and stated it was either the rear end or the differential. Manufacturer offered no help. The consumer stated that the wrong lube in the rear end differential. Manufacturer advised a different lube. Consumer waiting for results when 5th wheel rv is being towed.

My automobile is unsafe, I almost wrecked Thursday with my children with me. It very scary and I am afraid to drive it any more. We have been through arbitration twice and been denied. We have two dealerships that have driven it and says it is unsafe and needs to be removed from the highways. I have contacted daimler Chrysler and they have refused to cooperate with us. Please call me at 479-394-0058 or 614-886-5716
