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.

The contact owns a 2007 Mercedes Benz ML350. The contact stated that there was a burning smell inside vehicle. The alternator and battery warning lights were also illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who inspected the vehicle and found water in the spare tire compartment. The water entered the lift gate control module and caused the module to shorten and burn. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure and current mileage was 80,000.

Defect/ mechanical failure of front passenger jack mount. I had jacked up the front passenger side of my 2007 ML350. Both back wheels were blocked with automotive wheel blocks. The parking brake was engaged, and the vehicle was in park with the motor off. The vehicle was parked on my cement driveway. I carefully place the jack to ensure it engaged into the jack mount and that the base of the jack was secure and stable on the cement. I loosened the lug nuts prior to jacking the car. After removing the wheel, I rolled the wheel out of the way and went to get a jack stand from the opposite side of the vehicle. Moments later, the vehicle fell. The jack mount had failed and the extended jack damaged the front fender, jack mount, and underside of the vehicle. I believe I took all reasonable precautions in jacking the car and I am very surprised and concerned that this occurred. I could have been seriously injured. These jacks are typically for use under much less ideal conditions. I have contacted Mercedes Benz head office in writing since the service manager at a local dealer suggested it was not mb fault. I also wrote them via their online email submission form on the corporate website - they have not responded.
