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 bought this low mileage car ( it is 2003 E320 with only 29900) I January of this year and the problem existed when I bought it. But before I bought it I took it to MB dealer in Lakeland Florida and had them verify that the problem was not the SBC pump. They assured me the problem a short in wiring. I live a Hundred miles from Lakeland so when I got home with the car I took it to MB dealer in Melbourne Florida dealer. They kept it for five days looking for the problem and Charged me $1200.00 and did not fix the problem. They did do some other routine maintenance but they claim the contacted MB in Germany and that the soft ware had been changed to a European version and they could not change it back. That is why it says "SBC S" They left me like that. The mechanic told me to find a local mechanic who might be able to fix it.

The dealer said that if I replaced the SBC pump at a cost of about $1900.00 it "might" fix the problem but they couldn't guarantee it.
