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 bought a new 2016 C-class Mercedes Benz. I had the car for less than 24 hours when the engine light came on. I immediately took the vehicle in and was told that they do not have a fix for the problem. It is a problem with the ambient airflow. The engine does not work properly, causing a rough ride. When trying to accelerate the engine will stall and then shoot forward.
