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.

For a luxury car, the plastic handles perform like a piece of crap!

problem #1

240C C240 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

Mercedes benz is very expensive. This vehicle door handles are broken and it is embarrassing for someone to get into this so called upper class vehicle and the door handles are broken.

the door handle on the drivers side of vehicle is completely off. I have to pull the door closed by the compartment, where you place items in the door. I also forgot the gearshift, that show drive park etc. has completely come apart. i have to look on the dash and make sure I have the car in park, drive etc. This is my second Mercedes-benz and I believe it will be my last. I recently purchased a BMW.
