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.

problem #2

I am a disabled veteran and on April 30, 2015 my car smelled like gas. Mercedes Benz usa said to take it to nearest dealer atlanta classic cars in gwinnett county, ga. The problem: Leaking fuel tank, it took 120 days to replace the tank. The car still smells like gas, the dealership recommended replace the seat cushions, and the felt. Both are wet from gas, and has gas vapors on it. The technician showed me how to lift up the seats, and I took pictures of the wet seat cushions, and the wet felt. The dealership wants to charge me $565. My complaint is that I should not have to pay for a problem that I did not cause; this was caused by a leaking fuel tank. My throat burns from the gas smells, my eyes water, and I'm getting headaches. Part of my disability is asthma and the fumes in this car exacerbates the asthma. I called Mercedes Benz usa and they said unfortunately they covered just the part! this is horrible, and dangerous to ride around with wet seat cushions with gas on them. I cant believe Mercedes is not standing behind their product. This is a firetrap and they should be responsible for replacing the seat cushions and felt at no cost to me the consumer!
