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.

While driving on a local street, I noticed that brakes had stopped working. After investigation, I noticed that a corroded brake line was leaking brake fluid. I had contacted Mercedes Benz customer service. I was told to contact a dealer, who confirmed that all brake lines are corroding in the area close to the engine compartment. I was told that this is not a safety issue subject to a recall. I was further told that it is normal for brake lines to corrode and leak. I have not noticed corrosion on any other part of the car, except the brake lines.
