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.

baffle in fuel tank loose and making knocking sound

Loads of customers on line have complained of the same problem. Mercedes does nothing to support its customers. This should be a recall. Not sure what the dangers are of a metal item loose and sloshing around int the gas tank. Hopefully, it does'nt represent an exposion hazard!
