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 down the road on layton ave and 43rd street, and out of nowhere the headrests of the vehicle exploded, pushing my neck forward. Granted I went over a hole not that big, but the explosion was so drastic that it pushed my seat forward and my neck is now sore and tender from the impact. I am really scare now that this can happen anywhere. I called Mercedes Benz dealership and they said that they want me to bring the car so the can reset the system. I don't like that idea, because I got this car brand new and now the value really change. I don't feel safe in it anymore. I don't think Mercedes is willing to take the car back either. Should I follow a lawsuit? I have 5 months left on this lease but anything can happen with this car now since already showed some malfunction. Headrests are supposed to popped out only if you are rear ended.
