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.

Drove car fine all day on Saturday. Sunday am, put son and wife in car, started out drive way and car gave notice that car was too low. Walked around exterior of car and found that right front suspension mechanism had let air out itself and tire was well inside the wheel well. Apparently, this is a well known issue. Dtb (daimler technical bulletin) P-B-32.22/15A feb07 vehicle level decreases at front axle. In extreme cases the airmatic compressor will not activate to raise the vehicle. It is not defective. The compressor is not actuated due to insufficient residual pressure in the suspension struts. Any affected struts will be replaced and the compressor will be actuated with star diagnosis.
