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.

The inside door lock stems keep breaking off. I have replaced them with non Mercedes parts. The ones I purchased don't fit very well but the ones from Mercedes don't hold up. They keep breaking.

My inside door lock stems on my car keep breaking off and in an emergency, I'm afraid that the door could not be opened from the inside of the car. I have had three of them to break off for no apparent reason. It's a 2004 Mercedes Benz E320 and I don't feel that I should have to keep purchasing them over and over again. I personally know someone having the same problem with a 2008 Mercedes C350, is anyone complaining" I'm usually alone in my car so there isn't anyone/kids breaking them off. Why does this keep happening" I'm sending you this complaint because I just discovered another broken one last week.

I have 2004 E320 Mercedes station wagon. The manual tailgate won't stay up and closes on your head. A real safety problem that should not happen in the cars of today.
