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

A190 Elegance W168

  • Automatic transmission

From picking up the car from a dealership, the indicator lights only indicates to the left regardless if the combination switch is flicked up or down. Not sure how they have missed this from the vehicle safety check. But I have returned the car 3x - they have replaced the stalk switch with a Brand New from Mercedes Benz and yet the problem has not resolved.

When you travel in the freeway with trucks speeding left right centre, you will need to indicate where you will be going, having NO left indicator is such a danger to the road. It is considered UNROADWORTHY here in Australia and yet somehow they were able to sell it, but the fact that Merc had supplied a brand new stalk switch TWICE and still have not fixed the problem has caused so much disadvantage and issues with my lifestyle having 2 children and being actively involved in children's sports.
