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.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C230 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 062005

C230 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,405 miles


My Mercedes Benz C230 kompressor started having problems at 4400 miles, it has a hesitation problem. It now has 42,000 miles and still has hesitation. Its been in the shop 7 times for the same situation. They tried to blame it on water in the fuel, but it continues to have the same issue. Over the seven attempts to repair my vehicle, the problems still persists. The hesitation is consisted of stopping and going, jerking the vehicle when transmission from gear to gear. Its a fuel related problem. My fiance and I have been in to many close calls with accidents. The scare of my car is if I really need to avoid being in a accident with swerving, will I have the ability to do that? right now I don't. they have replaced the throttle body, fuel sensors, fuel pump, can't use premium gas recommended by germany tac line, a lot of carbon build-up in the fourth cylinder, gas tank and I think that's it.
