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 CLS55 Owner Comments

problem #1

CLS55 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,800 miles


The Mercedes clk350 VIN [xxx]- the passenger seat and driver seat when released to allow a rear passenger out of the car causes the head rest to automatically descend and can trap the rear occupants hand in place as it did with a 10 year child in my car. The control to raise the headrest is disabled when the seat is in this position thereby not allowing any method to release the trapped hand. I spoke with Mercedes this morning and they acknowledge that this is how it is designed and there is nothing wrong with it but would tell their engineers. Obviously this is a dangerous situation since everyone needs to use the front seat to assist themselves when exiting the vehicle.
