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.

A seal for the engine oil cooler failed. The cooler leaked oil onto the under-engine pan and was not detected as a leak on the garage floor. Had the cooler failed completely it would have created a safety issue in traffic. The seal failure appears to be a common problem but should not occur under normal use, which is how this vehicle is used.

Mercedes has manufactured a defective engine oil cooler seal. It needs to be replaced on every diesel engine at a cost of around 4000$.
