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 appr. 64,0000 miles on my Mercedes E350 and the check engine light came on. Sent it to the Mercedes dealership and said that the car had a balance shaft problem. Sold me the car in 2008. Service bulletins were out since 2007. Mercedes will only help minimally with the cost. Total cost so far is $3750. To much for me. Told Mercedes that I would have to drive around in a defective vehicle with my family and asked the rep. If that was safe, he replied "no". rep. Said that there was no campaign out on this problem. Something needs to get done before casualties occur.

I had so many problem with my Mercedes E350, but when the engine light was on I couldn't believe was the balance shaft. It was in warranty so I didn't pay a cent but when they returned the car back was not the same any more, the tail light was cracked and the A/C opening are inside. The car is not any more the same, sometimes is shaking, and has so many other problems. I saw online that Mercedes has to many cars with this defects that brings more problems, so I'm asking what are you waiting for a recall"????"
