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.

Today, I was informed buy the Mercedes Benz dealer service specialist at intake, at the only dealer in fayetteville N.C. 3203 bragg blvd. When taking the car in for service that the reverse camera for backing up safely, coaxial cable was damaged causing the camera to malfunction due to opening and closing the truck. Apparently, the truck slices the coaxial cable each time you open and close the truck until the cable breaks, stopping the connection of the camera to the viewer. I don't believing this defect in the use of the truck causing the cable to be cut up should be at the consumers expense to fix each time it happens from simply using our trunks. I also have a disability retirement due to injures to my neck and back working as a law enforcement officer, and that back up camera helps to insure safe back ups for people such as myself.
