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.

R350 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
On my 2006 Mercedes Benz R350, the rear brakelights and taillights regularly fail to eliminate. The lights are very inconsistent and when they fail a back-up substitute light comes on. A message appears on the dash indicating that the substitute lights are on. After changing the bulbs numerous times, I was told by a mechanic at Mercedes that the contact may be worn out.
