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 stopped at a stop sign when the vehicles RPM jumped to 4000, I quickly put the vehicle in "park". then turned the engine off and started the engine again. The RPM jumped to 4000 again. I turned the engine off and started it again. This happened twice within a week. Both times at a stop - once at a stop sign and once at a traffic signal. Took the vehicle into the Mercedes dealer but Mercedes service states there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. Almost exactly 1 year ago, my wife was in an accident because the vehicle "lunged" forward. She has not driven the vehicle since that incident and I've been driving this vehicle approximately 2 days a week for about a year. I hadn't understood her concern completely until it happened to me while I was driving the vehicle last week. There is a serious problem but Mercedes is saying there is nothing wrong with the vehicle.
