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.

problem #2

CLK320 6-cyl

  • 69,896 miles


SRS light appeared and we took vehicle into dealership and were told the passenger side airbag was defective and had to be replaced. We had the repair done on 10/03/14. We thought the manufacturer should be responsible for this safety issue since the vehicle is less than 10 years old. The dealership said it was not and the repair charges were paid by us. Wondering if this vehicle should be included in the national recall for defective airbags.

The SRS light came on once before like 6 months back, and the mechanic cleared the code. This light came back on Sept 5, 2012. The Mercedes dealer told me that there are 2 fault codes: 1. 900B - passenger side seat belt buckle 2. 9243 - passenger side airbag ignition squib this car has only close to 37,000 miles. And this is a safety issue with airbags will not deploy in accidents. This car has never been in any accidents and is in pristine condition. I very strongly feel this is poor workmanship by Mercedes and they should have a recall to fix this as this relates to safety.
