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 inside front door handle of C-class (year2002 or similar) is no good, if you park the car on the down slope street, and close the front door from wide open position, the door handle will give away and broken apart at the top end which is attached to the inside door panel only with a small plastic stud. I sent the complaint letters to Mercedes Benz usa as well as Mercedes Benz of san francisco, they never response. I believe the failure of the door handle to perform properly because of faulty design and the manufacture has to bear responsible by recalling this type of door handle.
