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.

Instrument cluster of my 2001 Mercedes Benz clk430 is faulty. I cannot read the gear indicator since the led lights have gone out. Not knowing what gear I am in can cause an error while driving that can lead to an accident. Instrument cluster was working fine until a couple of weeks ago where led started to fail. Gear indicator in the instrument cluster is no longer readable. This is a driving safety issue.

The instrument cluster in my 2001 Mercedes-Benz clk430 does not function properly. The pixels in the gear selector, temperature and clock section do not light up. This makes it impossible to tell what gear the car is in, and poses a safety hazard. The "P" and "R" are difficult to distinguish. This car has transmission problems, and the necessity to identify which gear the car is in by "feel" is dangerous.

Dash led's are failing causing the drive indicator to not register correctly. When I place it in gear because the lights go on and off as a bad connection I cannot tell what gear I am in. Also the same led's for the clock and temp are failing in the same unit.
