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 am concerned that the arm for the crusie control is too close to the turn signal arm. Several times a day I find that my hand (albeit a small hand) accidentally hits the cruise control lever instead of the turn signal - especially when signalling left. This activates the cruise control at a time when you are usually getting ready to slow down for a turn. I understand that braking will turn off the cruise automatically, but it is still an incovenience and could potentially be dangerous. I contacted Mercedes Benz and they said that the cars are all put through many, many tests and this problem didn't surface. A solution would be too shorten the length of the cruise handle or angle it more toward the dash. Possibly this would allow fewer mistakes.
