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.

problem #2

C320 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 75,000 miles


The air conditioning system failed in the C-240, 2006. I called for an appointment for diagnosis, and was given a date that put the car just out of extended warranty coverage. I discovered this after the fact. I had assumed that the air conditioner just needed charging again, and would not be covered. If I had any idea that it was going to be a $3,000 for repairs. I would have rushed back in December 2005 when the problem started with fogged windows.

This has been ongoing for 3 years. I have a Mercedes Benz C320. I have had intermittent air conditioner and heater. My electronic keys have been intermitant. There is a squeaking sound from the suspension. I get malfunction messages when there is no malfunction. My rear-lights have had to be replaced regularly.
