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 own 2001 mb ML320; the drivers front seat plastic frame keeps breaking causing safety issues while driving. I have taken the car back to the dealer 6 times and they have fixed it, however, today they are telling me that since it is not "totally cracked" they will not fix it. I am about to cross $50,000 mile warranty and that is a real reason why my dealer: Knauz Continental autos in laka bluff, Illinois is no longer willing to fix the problem. It seems to me that the framing cracks are manufacturing defect and that is why it keeps breaking. I would like to send E-mail pictures to whoever will be working on this case. The dealer is suppose to fix the problem until the end of warranty and not tell me that its not "totally cracked". please respond: VIN: [xxx]. please assist with this case.
