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 in my son [xxx] to his school in wayne New Jersey with my gl 450 seats warmer turned on in both the drivers and passenger seats. I started smelling smoke & thought it was from outside. I opened my window, and smoke started swirling inside my car and started getting thicker within minutes. I try to search for the source of the strange smell - but no obvious clue observed. When I reached my destination I noticed that the seat has burned a hole in my suit jacket back left side. The hole in the car is on the left side of the drivers seat. I have not contacted Mercedes Benz service and would like to know what I should do if possible. I would appreciate directing me to the appropriate line to fix my seat and electrical system of my Jeep and get compensated for my suit damage asap.

The plastic that holds the latch broke. We normally have a child seat buckled into that belt. But we were on a trip, and I was the one using this seat belt. I could not latch it, and found that a chunk of the plastic had broken away from the belt and would not latch. Mercedes and my extended protection plan will not replace it without a cost. Of apprx $170 I have never had an issue with a safety device in any vehicle that I have owned, and I believe that a car that costs over $80,000 would want to know why it has failed. I am grateful that my grand child was not buckled into this belt!
