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.

We smelled the odor of gasoline in our garage, so took our vehicle to Mercedes of henderson. We were informed that the fuel tank was cracked around the top mounting bolt and needed to be replaced. Upon further investigation, we noted that this is an ongoing problem with the Mercedes E and Clk class vehicles. The fact that the car has never been in an accident, this is obviously a defect in the manufacturing process. When researching on the internet, we observed numerous Mercedes owners with the same problem. Does our home have to burn to the ground before something is done to have Mercedes correct this problem.

Our 2006 Mercedes Clk 500 started to smell like gas right after filling it up and would continue to smell until about 3/4 of a tank. After removing the rear seat and service cover I noticed that there was standing gasoline on top of the gas tank.

When I filled the fuel tank, the inside of the car smells very strongly of gas fumes. The whole garage smelled strongly of gas fumes and gas was dripping on the floor of the garage. If the hot water heater decided to ignite, it could have caused a fire or explosion. I believe this is a similar issue to NHTSA investigation ea 13-003. The Cls class and the E class share the same chassis and fuel tank. If possible, please expand your investigation to include Cls class vehicles.
