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.

SLK280 6-cyl

  • 69,015 miles


Car made loud noise then the transmission stopped working. Car had to be towed to dealership. I have read alot of information regarding these transmission having issues. Dealer nor Mercedes Benz (corporate) in NJ would even assist to find out what or why the transmission failed at 69,000 miles and really didn't seem to care one bit. They were rude and unbelievably irresponsible about their product putting all of the cost ( $7500 ) bill square on the customer. I know they are aware of this transmission having problems. Its their product. They need to stand behind their product. Well crafted transmission replacing at 69,000 miles makes no sense.
