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.

Strong fuel smell after fueling the car. Very noticeable when parked in the garage. I reported this to the regional Mercedes Benz representative and they denied that there was an issue reported or recall for this issue. Due to this safety issue, I do not allow my wife to drive the vehicle any longer.

My 2009 Mercedes E350 emits a very strong fuel smell especially after refueling. I believe this may be related to your ongoing investigation - PE12001.
