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.

I purchased this C250 in Dec 2013, have 3 similar occurrence were the engine failed to respond. Once coming out of a light, and twice on I-95 both times trying to switch lanes to get out of on coming traffic, and on both occasions the vehicle did not respond to the gas pedal. One of the incidents occurred with cruise control engaged. We were lucky were not killed by the semi tractor trailers. Am a retire air force firefighter and I have seen some horrible stuff on the highways, thank god it was not meant to be those days. I contacted Mercedes-Benz usa hq. On all these safety occurrence below and all [xxx] at hq 1 800 367 6372 [xxx] would tell me is that vehicle was under warranty.... on the last time it happen they said the new engine had backfired and they were going the replace a fuel port or something... in this new vehicle.
