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.

The instrument cluster lighting is dimming to the point you have to squint to see the information. This requires focusing on the display for longer than a safe amount of time especially when you are driving.

E320 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles
The pixels on the instrument cluster of the 2003 Mercedes Benz E320 failed, conveying garbled information or no information at all. I am the second owner that purchased the car in June 2005, and Mercedes Benz refused to repair it under the 3 year warranty, claiming the mileage, 87000, was too high for warranty repair.
