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.

The contact owns a 2004 Mercedes Benz C230. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle's check engine light illuminated. This failure occurred on four occasions. After the first failure, the vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to find any failure. After the second failure, the dealer changed the brakes. During the third failure, the contact was almost involved in a crash. The vehicle skid in the middle of the street and would not stop. The dealer was taken back to the dealer and some parts were replaced. During the fourth failure, the vehicle began to shake while in motion. The vehicle then began to decelerate and the contact pulled to the side of the road and called aaa. The tow truck driver parked in front of the vehicle and a highway patrol officer pushed her vehicle towards the tow truck, causing the vehicle to bump into the rear of the truck. The current mileage is 19,000 and failure mileage was 17,000.
