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 was parking in la fitness gym. In la habra on 3/11/14 at 1 P.M, a clear day, in a space in the middle parking space. I was 90% parked in the parking space & had my foot on the brakes while finishing my parking. All of sudden the engine roared & car speed up & hit the SUV parked in front of me. The SUV moved 3-5 feet & touched the car parked next to it on its driver side. This has happened 2nd time. In Sep. 2013 this car accelerated by itself while I was parking behind a car by a residential area by a street curb. Please refer to my ODI # 10547151 for my previous reporting. The dealer has not been acknowledging any of my emails in this regard. My car's damaged is being repaired by house of imports in buena park, a Mercedes dealer. Please advise how can I recover my out of pocket loss & have the manufacturer fix this very risky defect.
