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.

We have a 2007 Mercedes Benz C230 sport. Shortly after purchasing this vehicle used with 32000 miles on it we started having balance shaft problems. Since then we have had the balance shaft sensor, and magnets replaces along with the crank case sensor. The vehicles check engine light is still coming on and we are now being told the balance shaft solenoids need to be replaced as well.
