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.

While driving on highway with a passenger at highway speed the SRS malfunction warning light illuminated instructing to take car for service. There was no accident and no object was struck. Mercedes mechanic advised that air bags would not deploy until this failure was corrected. Mechanic stated failure was in passenger seat belt buckle. Apparently many other Mercedes owners have had this problem. Sounds somewhat similar to Honda's latest problem.
