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.

1995 Mercedes-Benz C220 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 072007

(reported on)

C220 2.2L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


On occasion my Mercedes Benz C220 will turn over, but not start. After finally getting it started, I took it to a Mercedes Benz dealer. The first time, it took a couple of weeks to get it to duplicate the problem. They replaced a chip in the computer. The next time I took it in they had it for 3 weeks and could never get it to duplicate the problem. After about a month, it is doing it again. The last time it occurred, I turned the car off and got out. I got back in and tried to restart it. It finally started after 5 or 6 attempts. In the past it has taken as long as 20 minutes of constantly trying to start it before it finally started. I really like the car otherwise, but I'm currently looking to replace it.
