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.

Air bag control unit failure. This is an electronic module that controls the air bag system. When this unit fails, the air bag system no longer will function. I believe that this item failed prematurely and should be covered under some warranty oe recalled, as this is a safety issue, and one would not expect this item to fail at such low mileage. The cost to replace is well over $1000.

My car is an 2002 Mercedes S430 airmatic system failure struts and pump first the struts failed in Nov 2008 which lowers the car on top of the tires and makes the car undriveable. Now in June 2009, the pump failed which lowered the car on top of the tires and makes and car undriveable. This is a serious safety problem. If this system fails while driving, the car and damage the tires and cause a blow-out result in an accident. These failures have been reported by many owners and have caused injuries and extensive costs to owners. Everyone considers these failures to be very premature in the life of the car. This is very wide spread.
