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 have had several problems with my car hesitating and jerking first few times they fixed it then my car stopped on the freeway in traffic going 40 miles per hour, then the engine light came on again and after changing the transmission it stopped again on the street going 30 miles per hour. My car is still hesitating and jerking. I am so tired of taking the car in all the time and them giving me a rental, my family and friends think its funny that I have driven a rental so many times. The car has been in the shop total of about 50-60 days total. Mercedes will not give me my money back or change my car. I need help please before my car stops on me again on the freeway and someone hits me or I hit someone.
