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.

The '06 clk 350 I am about to purchase was taken in for inspection and diagnostics for the cel. The dealership told me that there is a problem with the balance shaft, which would eventually lead to misfiring and other engine problems. I do not know the history of the vehicle prior to this, or even when the cel first came on. I am being told that the engine must be removed and torn down to repair this problem, and the cost will be upwards of $4000. It has less than 54000 miles on it.
