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.

While parked I started the car and placed an item on the passengers seat. Immediately the SRS light came on. The SRS has detected something wrong with the airbag system and shut the airbags off on the car which is an extreme safety hazard. After taking the car to the mechanic I was told code 9223 and 9080 displayed. 92 23 states that the car needs a contact reel at steering wheel (part $410/labor nearly $300) and 9080 states the passenger side seat bottom needs to be replaced (part $1690/labor nearly $300). I believe this should be a recalled item because numerous Mercedes Benz have this issue and the repair cost is extremely high. Please investigate this safety issue. Due to the extreme cost for repair, I am driving an unsafe and hazardous vehicle. I am sure, I am not the only person in this situation.

Warning message displayed, "SRS restraint system malfunction visit workshop" upon investigating this error message on the internet Mercedes Benz forum, I have determined the following: 1. this is a very common problem, affecting several mb models, including the E-class, C-class, slk, clk, and possibly others. 2. when this message appears, the driver air bag is most likely disabled. 3. mb service bulletin pb-91.60/93D acknowledges this problem as a design or assembly error, and recommends replacement of a wiring component in the steering column. 4. mb service personnel are often unable to make the proper diagnosis and fix. 5. many mb vehicles are being driven daily with this problem, due to the cost ($700) and inconvenience of taking the vehicle to the dealer for problem correction. Due to the potential for personnel safety due to failure of the driver airbag in a frontal collision, and due to the apparent frequency of occurrence of this failure, corrective action should be initiated by mb in the form of a mandatory correction.

I was never informed of the serious defects on the vehicle. I was never given an opportunity to make an informed decision. Hence, the business practice of Mercedes Benz and or it's dealership was deceptive.
