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.

2004 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 122007

ML350 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles


2004 ml 350 had SRS and airbag lights appear on dash that did not go out during vehicle operation. Owner's manual stated this could result in no airbag deployment during an accident, or unexpected deployment of airbags. I went to the dealership and was told a seat recognition sensor was required for $752. This is a major safety issue and is a failure of a component that should not fail, and place vehicle occupants at risk, after only 3 1/2 years of operation. Manufacturer should be required to recall these vehicles and test and replace the sensors/modules or related parts.
