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.

Low beam driver side headlight is out and goes out when replacing bulb. I always take my car to the Mercedes dealership, where I purchased new in 2007, for maintenance. Service rep says the wiring in headlamp is corrosive and needs replacing. My husband looked at the wires and they seem to have melted. The lights have to be replaced at $350 each (X2) and the labor as well to remove the bumper and put in the new lights. This seems to be an issue w/ these cars and needs to be corrected or recalled. I've never heard of another vehicle doing this, nor costing nearly $1000 to replace two headlights, which is crucial for safety. I have looked to see if there are any recalls but have not seen any. Please advise if there are.

I was driving about 60 mph suddenly my car was jerking and shaking the speed started to decrease and the car suddenly turned off I was able to pull over to the side of the road and I had to turn the key to start it the engine light turned on and I was able to drive off like regular. The next day I was on the freeway exiting I was going like 40 mph when I decreased my speed to stop and make a turn my RPM was at high 4-5 and my speed was 20mph I had to step on the pedal all the way just to get to 20 mph.
