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.

"takata recall" I feel that this recall should be resolved by now. This is very unsafe if I have my children in the car and god forbid there is an accident then I would be in danger due to something that was designed to make travel safer. The is unacceptable and I purchased Mercedes for safety and reliability. My family has purchased Mercedes for years due to the quality it meant to own a Mercedes and quick issue resolution. If I was going to run into a airbag issue that would take this long to be resolved I could have purchased a Hyundai.

Takata recall- my son is about to get his license on July 11th, he will be 16 on July 6th. We bought him this Mercedes back in March 2016. I am afraid for him to drive it with the death and injuries takata airbags have cause people. However, we have not received any recall notice to get it repaired/replaced. I called Mercedes with no answer for me. I am scared for his life, he is a new driver and if he hits something and the airbag deploys he could die. This is the most insane thing I have ever had to deal with. I need an answer better than I will get a recall notice for repair/replacement in the next year or two. This is urgent. This is my son's life we are talking about and I can not afford to get rid of the car now!! I feel this car should not have been sold without it being fixed first.
