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 light bulbs in my 2002 Mercedes C320 are repeatedly going out. In the last year I have replaced (or had the dealer replace) the trunk light twice, the license plate light twice, both brake lights in the back at least once. In the last 3 months, we've replaced the front left turn signal light 3 times. The dealer cleaned the connectors last week - says that Mercedes knows of a faulty electrical connector problem and an exec at Mercedes was fired over the bad contractor they used. Currently the front left turn signal works sporadically. We'll bring it in to get replaced and it will work, so I drive it home and it stops working again. Now the dealer says I may need to replace the warning software (big $). he suggested I write to you.
