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

I bought the used Mercedes Benz Cls500 2006 just four days ago. In the dealer notes, it said there were no electrical issues and the car runs smoothly. I test drove it, and it did. But now, this is the 4th time the car failed to start. Sometimes it doesn't start until I turn the key about 20 times. Yesterday, the car stopped on the road while I was driving it. Luckily, I managed to restart it and drove home. And the car won't start again. Please help.

The car gas sensor was not working. Vehicle stalled in the middle of busy intersection gas tank read that there was 1/4 tank. Could have caused a major collision. Problem with the fuel system, tank and sensors. This is the 3rd time. Fuel module not working correctly. All repairs have been done through Mercedes dealership. This problem needs to be looked at I could have been killed. The system was replaced by Mercedes twice. On going smell of gasoline.
