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.

I'm smelling a heavy gas odor in my vehicle. Like there's a leak in the back seat.I feel unsafe in my vehicles. Is this problem covered under recall?

Hello guys. I am having an issue with my E350 (07), everytime I fill up my tank I can smell the gas. I don't smell it inside the car but outside the car and it is strong. It is really strong that you thought the gas spilled. Once the gas goes down to like 3/4 of a tank the odor will be gone. I tried tracing where the gas odor is coming from and I think it is under the fender on the rear driver side.

My car is having a extremely strong gasoline smell inside and outside of my car after I fill up the car. I have not seen any gasoline leak on the ground. But the smell inside and around the car is getting worse as time goes by and now I am afraid to park the car in the garage. I started noticing the smell 8-10 months ago and it has been getting worse after fill up. The smell is noticeable after the the tank is half empty. This is a serious risk that needs to be addressed by Mercedes Benz. Mostly I smell the gas when the car is parked. The rear seat passengers have complained about the strong smell when the car is moving as well.

I have been reading all fuel related complaints regarding my vehicle and its overwhelming the amount of complaints over the same thing. I have a gas odor in rear left side of vehicle after I feel my car. My certified Mercedes mechanic inspected the rear seat are and notice fuel at the sending unit on top of tank. Mercedes Benz says my VIN is not part of the extended warranty but yet I have the exact same problem that those non pzev vehicles. Is there some kind of ruling or agreement says Mercedes needs to resolve this problem??

My car for the past month has had a terrible fuel smell every time I filled my car up. The fumes smelled awful and they would make me sick. I kept asking mechanics what is going on, and when I called Mercedes they said my VIN number didn't match the recall. This was a total lie. I was never notified that there even was a recall. After getting to a person who has a position of more authority I was told to have the car towed to the dealership where it sits now. However I got the runaround first from corporate Mercedes. Then when I was driving down a busy street the car completely stopped. I was caught in a busy intersection. When I checked on line I found out about the class action suet. I read all the complaints and almost all of the stories for 2007 E350's matched my issue. I have no idea if Mercedes will stand by their name and fix this very dangerous problem. If not I will call my lawyer.

The gear shift keep getting stuck. The car revs and doesn't change gear when driving it stays in the first gear. Then when it does changes the gear skips, causing a jolt in the car. Brought it to the shop and was told that it's a default sensor that's not picking up, causing it to skip. Two separate shops and they told me to make this complaint. I've called the number on this site months ago, made a complaint and still nothing. I've seen quite a bit of complaint on this matter on this site, yet no change. This can be very dangerous because the car stalls which endanger the operator of the vehicle, passengers, and other motorist on the road. This can cause an accident. I'll use today's date because I don't remember the specific date I called before. Very dangerous

Strong fuel smell after gas tank fill up under rear seat. Did research from NHTSA who stated Mercedes had extended warranty for fuel tank components leak. Notified rbm Mercedes atlanta of problem who verified extended warranty and agreed to repair fuel tank leak. However rbm Mercedes notified me that the rear seat cushion was so saturated with gas fumes that they could not get smell out without replacing rear seat cushions which Mercedes would not cover this cost of $550. They will replace components to delete fuel leak but not stand behind the consequences of the leaky fuel system.. their inferior fuel system is the cause of this unbearable fuel odor that remains after their tank repair should and must be considered a part of the fuel leak problem. They should bear the expense of correcting this health hazard gas fuel smell. Exposure to this fuel smell is a real and serious health hazard that cause impaired driving abilities and permanent health consequences and must be dealt with quickly to eliminate any further exposure.
