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.

The contact owns a 2009 Mercedes Benz S class. The contact was driving 55 mph when a vehicle ahead of him abruptly stopped. The contact applied the brakes as the pedal was applied down to the floorboard and remained. The contact was unable to release the brake pedal and crashed into the preceding vehicle. The frontal air bags did not deploy and the sos system did not engage. There were no reported injuries. A police report was available (sp1L15000802). The vehicle was towed to a local repair facility. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure and the current mileages were 8,000.
