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.

Consumer went to start the vehicle and discovered that electrical components such as navigation, radio/cd, telephone, voice command, gas gauges, and power windows were not working. Since then the brake lights and turn signals were replaced twice, and will be replaced the third time in less than a year. Took vehicle to a dealer and contacted Mercedes, who said they could replace navigation and the radio/cd which S\were connected by same computer for $3,000. Dealer did not know why this happened, but there was an electrical short. Have not been replaced or repaired.
