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.

Lost power steering while driving. Was told by Mercedes on-call service technician that the clamp to the power steering is coming loose in all of the ml 320's and the car still isn't being recalled. In fact there were two other complaints in the one hour he was there helping me.
