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.

2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 202005

CLK 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


The transmission of my new car, 2006 mbz C280, has failed three times. The car goes into a false neutral while driving and then eventually falls into gear. After this episode, the car continues to drive in a low gear. The dealership has tried: 1. replacing the valve body on the car's transmission and uploading the new software 2. replacing the transmission with a completely new transmission from the dealership 3. replacing the valve body of the new transmission.
