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 #1

C320 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

The problem: When applying pressure to the gas pedal, no response is experienced in the car initially. This causes the driver to depress the gas pedal more aggressively to get the car to respond. When it does respond, it accelerates extremely fast. I have had two near accidents because of this condition. As a driver, you must throttle the car aggressively to feel confident the car will accelerate to get moving. The stated problem has existed since purchasing this car new in July 2002. I have reported the problem to the dealer (park place motor cars) and asked that it be corrected on 2 different occasions. I've had no positive response and consequently the condition exists today.
