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.

Purchase my 2014 cla 250 in January 2014 for my daughter. In may my daughter call and said the car just stopped running while she was driving it. Didn't really think anything of it because she was a new driver. About 3 weeks later she said it did the same thing. Again in October 2014 I was driving the car. Driving about 40mph and the car just stop moving. A message of inoperative came the screen. I was able to pull to the side of the road. The steering was very hard to turn and nothing would work except for the brakes. If you turn the car off and start it again the car will start working again. Put the car into the shop. They said it was a computer update. Mercedes dealer updated the system. As they were driving the car back to me the same thing happened. So they took it back to the dealer kept if a week and said they fixed the problem. Three months later exactly 1 year having the car. My daughter was driving to school and it stop running again and this time the tire lights came on. So I picked the car up from school and on the way home the car stop running again received the same message as always the car is inoperative. This has happened in one year of owning the car 6 times. This is very dangerous. I do not advise anyone to purchase this car.

problem #1

Driving on highway at 70 mph when I nearly caused a collision because I encroached on another car's space in the next lane to my left. I believe this was due to the fact that the Cla250 driver side mirror does not adequately cover the blind spot and does not provide safe and effective view of the left lane. The mirror is adjusted all the way out but can only see the quarter panel of the Cla250. During my near-collision, I did physically turn my head and shoulders to view the traffic on the left lane (three lane highway). It was clear. As I was about to switch into the lane 2 seconds later, another care was already in the space that the Cla250 side mirror did not give me a second opportunity to view. I believe this is a defect in design and presents a hazardous condition.
