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.

After replacing my radiator which I was told had developed a mysterious weld failure ($1200) the all wheel drive system was engaging and disengaging on dry pavement. Inspection determined failure of the transmission. It was stated by the dealership that only a few droplets of radiator coolant accidently mixing with transmission fluid would cause this failure. The fact that both these lines had been handled when they had to be removed from the failed radiator was chalked up to a "coincidence" by the service people at the Mercedes dealership. Even though car was out of warranty in years, Mercedes agreed to pay all but $500 to replace the transmission. Of course this was only one of many problems to beset a vehicle with relatively low mileage.
