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.

Replace engine, transmission, 3 suspensions is 3 years-twice on the right side Mercedes and intercar claimed that right rear air spring had a leak left rear shock leaking and claimed normal wear and tear at 71725 miles-so was the pages and pages of the link below at 71000 miles, power door locks stopped working, power drivers mirror stopped working, safety lock for back windows stop working, burns 2 quarts of oil a month, sunroof leaks, and doesn┐┐T always close all the way, ABS speed sensors defective, rear main radial seal in transmission defective, replace defective engine thermostat, replaced the batteries due to corrosion (under the seat), faulty signals for tail lights and parking tail lamps (electrical), air conditioning ambient sensor defective, replace defective radio antenna. This car has major design flaws, and has been discontinued by mb. My 2007 R350 has hit every defect listed below with the exception of parking brake, and steering column. Mercedes-Benz always claims it is normal wear and tear. I know of no car let alone a Mercedes with this many defects, I want them to buy this piece of junk back, they offered me 2000 towards a new Mercedes, I have been driving Mercedes since 1995 and never had problems like this. You would think as many of their cars I owned that they would have stepped up to save not just their reputation but O save a client. Suspension complaints: All at similar mileage, mb response was normal wear and tear.

The contact owns a 2007 Mercedes-Benz R350. The contact stated that the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was then taken to the dealer where the dealer stated that the engine was operating at half power and that the down shaft needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The failure and current mileages were 51,000. Updated 4/24/13 updated 05/21/2013
