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.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C280 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 052015


  • miles


The contact owns a 2007 Mercedes Benz C280. While driving highway speeds, there was a drastic reduction in speed without warning. In addition, the rpms raced and the accelerator pedal was not responding. The contact had to apply force to the accelerator pedal to coast the vehicle over to the side of the road, turn off, and restart the vehicle. The failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the automatic transmission needed to be replaced and the transmission shaft, springs, internal speed sensor, and cam shaft needed to be re-adjusted to the correct position. The contact was not able to drive the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no remedy. The failure mileage was not available.
