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 contact owns a 2006 Mercedes Benz E350. The contact stated the brake failed numerous times while attempting to stop the vehicle. The ABS light illuminated and a beep sound was heard while the failure occurred. The contact was able to avoid a crash by increasing the brake distance. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times where the diagnostic test indicated recall 04V296000 sensotronic brake control was not the cause of failure. The dealer confirmed that the battery was causing the brakes to fail. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 25,000 and the current mileage was 130,000.

Mercedes Benz knows about the sbc unit wearing out the brakes prematurely yet has done nothing about it. There has been a software update for the brakes also, but this has nothing to do with the premature wear. This has to do with fixing a bug in the software for the brake lights to come on and for you to bring in for service. Problem is they are charging consumers for this bug fix. I had to pay $120. My current mileage is 127,000. Brakes have been replaced going on 5 times already.
