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.

2006 Mercedes Benz Cls500. Last night while pulling into a parking spot located in a commercial building, the car suddenly accelerated forward and hit the office wall greatly damaging the driver's front side. I had already eased up on the gas pedal hardly pressing the gas as about to stop the car and place it in park. I filed the claim and know that this looks like I accidentally pressed the gas instead of the brake. However, the acceleration was rocket-speed. Once I got home, I realized the same thing happened a month back (Jan - the week following christmas). I was backing out of a parking space with the back of the area where I had parked completely free when suddenly the car jolted back (again at what seem rocket-like speed). I applied the brakes and stopped the car. The car in the past as jolted in the process of acceleration feeling like it is almost "stuck." I did not have it question the first incident further because I had not been driving the car long - it is my husband's car and he now has a demo from work. Also, the air bags never came out although the impact was heavy. I am very concerned - even if the car can be repaired, I have reported my concern to my insurer. I could have done much more damage than I had done and am worried now that it has happened twice. I have emailed Mercedes waiting for their response, but I found other people with similar complaints including #10206072 that is almost the same case as mine and the same year and model car.
