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.

1999 Mercedes-Benz C320 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 172014

C320 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 178,000 miles


Recent problem with C320 is related to check engine sign related to failure of fuel pump and filters that cost me a lot just two weeks after I spend thousands for the same failure mode that was related to 3 of the 6 cylinders failed. I also had this problem along with several others started to appear right after the 100,000 mark on mileage.

I have had several major issues for different failures like major oil leak that created failure of three/3 out of six cylinders (cost $2500), left seat control module two times (cost >$1200 every time), ESD failure (cost $2000), that locked my steering wheel, fuel pump and filter failure (cost $1200), two other reoccurring issues that are hard to explain and so on... like I can never get rid of light lamp/bulb failure signs even after I have replaced many of them over time.

I don't think Mercedes even care about users' concerns any more. I think they are trying to get into car service business by producing crappy cars instead of selling reputed reliable cars.
