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.

2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 Owner Comments

I own a 2007 Mercedes clk 350, I was on the highway with my son, when my car stopped accelerating while in motion. I was terrified! I was in the middle of oncoming traffic with big rigs and all. When I realized that the car would not accelerate, nor could I change gears, I turned the wheel to head towards the emergency lane. The car shutdown before I was able to get the car completely in the lane. I waited and attempted to restart the vehicle. The car restarted and I moved off the exit. As soon as I exited, the car stopped accelerating again, and shutdown in motion. My car diagnostic was the transmission control module/speed sensor. Upon investigating I discovered that this is a known issue that has been reported to Mercedes on numerous of occassions. I discovered complaints at NHTSA, Consumer Affairs, all the way to the BBB. Even the service departments said that this is a common problem on these models. I was so upset! to find out that, this is a known defect but the consumers have not been notified. My son and I were in the middle of the interstate and we could have been directly hit and killed! this is a serious issue! a car should not stop in motion at anytime, anywhere! Mercedes needs to replace this part that is required to fix this known defect, before a serious injury or death occurs.
