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.

While driving vehicles' speed will decrease intermittently to 20 mph without brakes being applied. Vehicle will stay at 20 mph for 10-15 seconds, then speed will increase. Problem has worsened as time progressed. Once when speed decreased sos malfunctioned, and there was a loud noise.

ML320 4WD

  • miles
This is my second ml 320 and both cars developed the same problem at about the same time. The first one was a 1999 ML320 and the current one is a 2001 ML320. When driving on trips of over 150 miles, the car stops responding to the accelerator. It begins by jerking and then fails to respond to any pressing of the accelerator pedal at times, the response returns after several jerks, other times, the car slows and fails to respond.
