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.

The transmission has repeatedly locked in 2nd gear. The electrical system shows constant light, coolant and air bag failures. The memory for seats, mirrors and the steering wheel defaults about 30% of the time. I bought this car through M-B diplomatic sales program while serving in Canada and brought it to the usa on retirement. M-B Canada won't help because the car is in the us. M-B usa won't help because I bought the car in Canada. M-B corporate in germany simply referred my case back to M-B usa. I am now out of warranty. I want M-B to extend the warranty another 4 years or 50K miles. The car is a disaster.
