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 driving my Mercedes E350 on I-95 North bound somewhere near philadelphia. My family including my wife and my two sons were also on the car. Somehow, all of sudden, the vehicle was not under control, which is, the vehicle quickly slowed down and despite the fact that I kept pressing the gas pedal, the vehicle did not move (I believe that the engine was shut down for some reason). I had to use hazard signals to warn the vehicles of the drivers behind me. Meanwhile, my son advised me to press the sos button of my vehicle. Fortunately some drivers noticed that my vehicle was not moving and some of them help me switch the transmission to neutral and helped push my vehicle to the road side. We also got help from police officers to escort my family members to the nearby train station and my vehicle was towed to the service department of ray catena, Edison, NJ, where I purchased the vehicle. The service adviser asked me to pay $135 for them to examine what was wrong with the vehicle. My concern is that Mercedes E350 is supposed to be a car with good and safe quality, so why did it happen to my vehicle. I always have my car maintained by Mercedes service department on a scheduled basis. I (and my family members) could have gotten killed that day. I also worry that after the vehicle is repaired, the same or similar situation could happen again. So please advise what I should do with this event. Thank you.
