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.

For a couple of months when I put my 2014 E350 sport in park it would jerk forward. Never really thought about it being a problem. I was driving my car into my neighbors driveway and went to turn around and just as I went to put the car in reverse, the car propeled forward directly into her tree. If the tree had not been there my car would have went into the front of her house. I am thankful that I am just shaken up and a little sore. I am also thankful that I was the only one in the car during this freak event and that if happened where it did because the 2 other times that I was in my car that day is was in heavy traffic and I would have done major damage to myself and possibly someone else. At first I believe my shoe got caught on the accelerator, but there is no possible way this could be the issue as I was appying it to the brake when the car propelled forward. For as hard as I hit the tree the airbag did not deploy. I was able to drive my car back home with all the coolant leaking from it.

The contact owns a 2014 Mercedes Benz E350. The contact stated that while driving at 65 mph, the vehicle stalled. In addition, the contact noticed the vehicle had been leaking fuel. The vehicle had to be towed to the dealer where it was informed that the failure was related to NHTSA campaign 15V792000 (fuel system, gasoline). The vehicle was repaired under the recall. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 11,000.

I was traveling on highway 26 at approximately 60 mph getting ready to merge onto highway 526, when the entire digital warning panel lit up and then went dead, with the engine inoperable light coming on and asking me to refer to the owners manual. All power was cut from the gas pedal and I was lucky enough to be able to coast to a very small strip of median without being hit by any other vehicles. This is a very heavily trafficked area and charleston being a port city I was very fortunate that the trucks that were around me were able to avoid hitting me. If I had been in another situation, such as pulling out into traffic or trying to cross over a two lane highway the results could have been catastrophic to say the least. I have been told by the dealer that there was a bulletin issued involving the throttle valve actuator, topic # LI54.18-P-058597, version 9. they have not been able to tell me why this happened in the first place, cannot guarantee it will happen again and I would like to know why there was not a recall for this particular potentially life threatening issue? sincerely, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Cruising at 65 mph the ESC lights came on and the car lost power. It no longer responded to the accelerator and required that you pull off the road, come to a stop, and restart the car. This same problem has happened 3 more times once at 35 mph on a straight road; once at about 20 mph making a turn and again cruising on an expressway at ~50 mph. This is an extremely dangerous defect, since a failure of this type when entering a highway or trying to overtake another vehicle could cause a high speed accident, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. The car has been to the dealer twice to fix this, and is now back for the third time.

I bought my first Mercedes 20 days ago, I was driving with my kids around 6:30pm when suddenly I smell fuel inside the car and another vehicle approaches me to advised me that my car was leaking fuel all over the road. I took my kids out of the car immediately and I contacted the Mercedes Benz service department for help and I was told by a receptionist that the service department was closed that I need to contact a tow service that way the vehicle can be deliver to the dealership for service. You can't imagined how I felt on the side of the road at that time alone with my 2 kids with a car leaking fuel. I'm very disappointed!!
