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.

My 2003 E 320 has been in the shop 3 times because when I come to a stop at times it will suddenly shut off and all the lights on the instrument cluster will light up. The problem is intermittent and the vehicle has 19,000 miles on it.

The 2003 Mercedes Benz E500 has a faulty gateway module and software. This module has resulted in problems being reported in my car that the brakes, self restraint system, telephone system, and tire pressure have failed. I have no way of knowing if the the safty systems are operational or not. At this point I am driving a car that says my SRS system is not working. I have been in the Mercedes shop no less than 3 times to have the problem repaired. It simply re-occurs after each repair.
