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.

GL450 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Mercedes Benz GL450. While driving approximately 40 mph, the transmission seized and the vehicle abruptly came to a halt. The service engine warning indicator illuminated after the failure occurred. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who stated that the defect was related to internal damage within the transmission. The vehicle was then towed to an authorized dealer for diagnosis. The dealer stated that the transmission would need to be replaced due to faulty cam shaft locking. The vehicle was being repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 70,000. Updated 01/25/12
