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.

I own a 2006 Mercedes-Benz cls amg. The ride has degraded and it now vibrates significantly. I took it to the dealer. They state all 4 rims are bent. This is probably true however, the car has been driven carefully and nothing has happened which would cause all 4 wheels to be bent. A search on the internet revealed others with the same complaint. The rims do not appear to be of sufficient strength to cope with normal driving even in California.

My 2006 Mercedes Cls55 amg has had 6 dented rims within the first 13 months (11,000 mi). My dealer sold me wheel and tire insurance, but states the rim must be cracked before it will be replaced. I've already replaced two rims at $1100 each, and the car is almost undriveable due to vibration. The tires supplied with the car are completely worn out, and one has a sidewall bubble. If the current trend continues, I will have to spend close to $20,000 in rims over a 39 month lease period. The car has been driven at normal speeds, mostly over smooth highways. A report from tire regarding the factory supplied tires suggests that they not be used at temperatures below 40F! the wheels and tires supplied by Mercedes Benz on this car are completely inadequate for normal driving conditions, and I would not have leased the vehicle had I been informed of this obvious defect.
