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.

Mercedes 2003 E320: The parktronics in the car, are set off by constant rain over the hood of the car, in speeds up to 10mph. The double red lights go off and the parktronics warning buzzers go off, warning that you have hit a solid object. I was driving through the parking lot of a kroger grocery store and my parktronics warning lights and buzzers went off warning that I had hit something solid. I took the car into park place Mercedes in dallas Texas and they replaced my parktronics twice, then the third time I brought the car in for the same problem, they informed me that they would not replace them anymore, because Mercedes did not consider this a defect any longer, but that their parking sensors were very sensitive to rain running over the front of the cars hood. I would have to live with the solid object warning buzzers going off because Mercedes no longer considered this a defect. This can pose serious problem with anyone driving in a heavy or blinding rain and their car keeps warning them, that they have hit a solid object. Especially in heavy rush hour traffic where drivers are moving at lower speeds, and slamming on your breaks every time the car warns that you have hit a solid object, when you have not, is a serious safety risk. My Mercedes E320 has spent 47 days in 2003, in the dealership repair department for major electrical system failures, which are common to the entire 2003 E320 release.
