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.

2006 Mercedes ML350. Vehicle surges when starting/ pulling out and coming to a stop.. the dealership has vehicle for five weeks and they still haven't found the problem. This problem started occurring after two weeks after purchase. No accidents have occurred.

Regarding: ODI id number 10130895 I had similar issues with the vehicle and Mercedes Benz could not replicate the problem and blamed it on me for driving with two feet. I don't drive with two feet and I refused to accept the car without anything being diagnosed and repaired. The next day they called and had a code for a faulty crank sensor which they replaced. I haven't noticed any problems since then but it was very unnerving to know my wife was driving this vehicle (ML500 '06) while these problems could happen. Someone should recall this immediately.
