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.

Car exhibits a rough/unpredictable shifting and acceleration at intermittent intervals. Issue presents itself at random times and at random speeds so it is difficult to recreate at will. Especially dangerous when attempting to pass or avoid hazards at highway speeds; when you press on the gas sometimes there is a long delay before acceleration begins, and then the acceleration is more than expected for the accelerator input. Other times the car acts normally and will respond properly to accelerator inputs. At low speeds shifts from 3 to 4 and 4 to 3 are sometimes abrupt/rough which is not consistent with a car of this caliber. The car also had a rear end shake from new, so dealer replaced rear tires, and then when shaking persisted they replaced the front tires, but there is still a noticeable rear end shake which the dealer attributes to "road feel" due to low profile tires, but I've had automobiles with low profile tires and I am a mechanical engineer, so I know what road feel from a low profile tire is vs shaking which was clearly present otherwise they would not have replaced all four tires. Car has been in and out of the dealer multiple times, but the shaking, and transmission issues persist.

The transmission jerks between 3-4 gear up shift change, creating instability on wet or slick road conditions which can cause your car to lose control. Furthermore, the jerking created can create a car accident or injury in low speed, stop an go traffic. Mercedes Benz claims it is performing as designed and is not accepting liability for there defective product.
