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.

In the past 10 months the car in question has expereinced one broken suspension coil spring, and a seperate suspension coil spring fracture. I contacted Mercedes about this issue and expressed my concern about the quality of these core suspension components. The response I received amounted to them being sorry that "things fail". I suspect there is a large population of poorly designed/manufactured suspension springs in Mercedes' vehicles on U.S. roads right now and I felt some responsibility to report my experiences.

E350 6-cyl

Front tires wore out on the inside prematurely. Dealer ( keyes merc.) was unable to align the front suspension. I was told that the suspension had dropped, due to gravity, and that they would have to place shims to prop up the front end. Merc customer relations was unable to provide me with a reasonable engineering explanation and unwilling to rectify the situation. The shims were placed and the car still pulls to the main concern is the safety of my family in the event of a suspension failure.
