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.

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 212007

GL450 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,500 miles


On three separate occasions the 'charge air hose' connecting to the turbo intercooler system on my 2007 Mercedes gl320cdi has failed. The hose has been replaced four times total. According to internet message boards there are numerous failures that mb has failed to fix including mine. On all occasions of the incident my entire family has been in the vehicle. While under acceleration the hose fails and forward speed is lost. On two occasions I have been on the interstate and driving on the incline of a hill where other vehicles were behind me. It is not safe.
