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.

2001 Mercedes-Benz ML320 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 112004

ML320 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,000 miles


3rd catalytic converter failure in less than a year. December, 2003 - initial failure. Had to badger mb to find a part. Fumes coming in to the cabin of the vehicle. June, 2004 - second failure of catalytic converter. October, 2004 - catalytic converter failed again. Due the number of failures on this vehicle (in addition to the catalytic converter), requested from the dealer that we speak to the area Mercedes-Benz representative. Dealer refused. Initially brought to the attention of the dealer on October 11th. Scheduled for repair on October 23rd. Considering the possibility of engine fumes (again), we consider this a safety issue as well as an environmental issue.
