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.

  • Automatic transmission

After leaving my 2001 clk320 Mercedes at the dealership I was notified that my brake system was defective requiring pads/rotors and other related items along with the fact that every 1000 miles or so, a light bulb or something electrical will fail and I usually find the nearest dealership and get the problem fixed. The brake system (which is not under warranty) was the last straw! we are talking about a 50,000 dollar automobile with only a little over 17,000 miles on it.
