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.

I just bought this car yesterday and have had the power steering not work five times already. Unfortunately, it didn't happen when I test drove it. At very slow speeds the power steering doesn't work at all. I read numerous complaints online of power steering issues with these cars while driving faster as well. Serious Safety Issue. The dealer says my Vin # shows that it already had the recall on this fixed. I may have to call and inquire more.

I am wondering if I should just have the whole system replaced or trade this in for a newer different car? I know there are issues with the hoses and clamps and reservoir, but when I took it to a shop today they suggested I replace the pump. I bought this good looking Mercedes from an individual who said they knew of no problems with the car. He finally replied to my questioning messages saying this problem happened a few times for them at low speeds but they thought nothing of it. Hmmm. It is definitely a HUGE concern to me.
