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.

C230 4-cyl

The contact states the airbag system failed twice in the past ten months. The onboard computer said SRS warning did not drive at that time, . the vehicle had to be towed to the dealership. There was a code reset in the computer. This happened again, and they replaced a fuse box in the dashboard. The gas gauge has also gone out twice in one month. The dealership drained the gas and reset a computer code. When it happened again they had to replace a part in the gas tank and reset the computer code again. Both items were working correctly at this time.
