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.

Reference ODI 10457817 I have since received a letter from Mercedes Corp. Stating the fuel pump fire is due to age and normal wear and tear. I asked how a fire inside a fuel tank can be normal for any reason. They would only repeat that it was normal for the age of the vehicle. I cannot get rid of the vehicle right now for financial reasons. However I don't have to let my family ride in it. Please help because this is not right. I have the letter from mb stating the above.
