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.

problem #1

Jun 182007


  • 45,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Mercedes-Benz R350. When attempting to accelerate the vehicle hesitated then accelerated up to 20000 rpms (tachometer red line). He was able to turn the engine off. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and repaired. Several months after the repair the failure resurfaced. The vehicle was towed again to the dealer and a technician concluded that the transmission's electronic device failed. However he speculates that the electronic throttle failed. The failure mileage was approximately 45,000. The current mileage was approximately 49,000.
