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.

2003 Mercedes-Benz E320 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 132004

E320 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


Car purchased and always serviced at fletcher johes, newport beach, ca..a total of 20 plus faults and 13 weeks in repair out of 12 month of ownership...had asked dealer to take the car back and replace it with an alternator. Dealer wants us to trade in and purchase a new car. After paying $50,000 for a quality name, this seems like a joke. 1. foul amonia small from A/C when car is first started. Dealer changed ventilation filter but smell continues. 2. radio button sticks. Dealer says mb does not want to fix this. Car is warranty for another four years. 3. convinence settings for lights and mirror keep resetting. Dealer says they found no fault code but this problem remains. 4. when going up hill the transmission upshifts and the car goes to a crawl then stalls, when accelator is pressed, the transmission downshifts to 1st gear and the car leaps forward. Dealer says they found no fault code but this problem remains.
