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.

ML320 6-cyl

Driving on rt 30 in camden NJ when my vehicle began accelerating at high rate of speed (I was traveling at 50mph and vehicle sped up to about 80 and I could not stop it). I had to put emergency brakes and ultimately put vehicle into park to get it to stop. Nothing in vehicle caused vehicle to accelerate and vehicle did not stop and nearly caused me to drive into traffic. Mercedes denies having any problems with vehicles and blamed me for operation. I have been driving on the road as a police officer for 14 years and know that it was an issue with vehicle that caused this problem
