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.

1998 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Owner Comments

ML320 4WD

I purchased a Mercedes sport-utility vehicle in 1998 (ML320). The driver-side, side-view mirror is a "major-league" driving hazard. The mirror does not adjust sufficiently, leaving a huge blind spot. Every car I have ever owned allowed the mirrors to be adjusted so that a car passing on the drivers side could be tracked from the rear-view mirror, to the side mirror, to the drivers peripheral vision. With the ML320 a passing car gets lost in the transition between the side-view mirror and the driver's peripheral vision. The mirror cannot be adjusted far enough outward to cover this blind spot. This problem is excascerbated by the position of the wide roof-support column.
