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.

problem #1

A160 1.6L

The gearbox failed and on uses one forward gear when traveling, hence limited to travel at 40kph. I looked for a quotation of replacement of the gearbox and the Mercedes dealer sent a quote for $7000! Yet models from 2000 for the A160 ex-Japan landed cost is max $4500!!!
