The vehicle was taken to the dealer for recall repair; however, the dealer informed the contact that the seat belts did not qualify for the recall repair because the seat belts were fully retracting.

The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 2,500.

I was driving on a straight away doing the speed limit which is reported seconds before the car crash. The steering wheel turned to the left really hard out of no where and wouldn’t let me gain control over the car again. I was sober it was 9am and I was aware of my driving. I ended up spinning out and landed in the ditch feet away from the light pole. I made it know to everyone what happened, but they looked at me crazy. I stopped driving that car and sent it back to Mercedes to get a detailed inspection. Which lasted about 30 days for them to get back to me about what happened. When I received the call to get my car they didn’t provide any information about the incident. Instead they just sent it to corporate and left me in the dark. I was in pain during this whole time. I was couldn’t find a lawyer that was willing to help. It’s been three years since the incident and I will have to live with pain for the rest of my life. It’s not fair that we need thousands of dollars to be heard. I have all communication and documentation that was given during the time of incident.

The car was parked on my driveway, As soon as i started it, I got a message 'The electronic rear axle differential lock is inoperative' NHTSA previously issued a recall for 2017 C63s AMG models. I purchased this vehicle from Carvana in April 2021 with clean single owner carfax. The manufacture warranty has expired. I have seen lots of posts on Mercedes forum talking about this issue where Mercedes did fix the issue free of cost. Since there is no open recall on my vehicle, I am not sure what to do.

MB USA extended the warranty coverage on the low pressure fuel hoses that connects to the high pressure fuel pump. The reason is "under certain cold ambient conditions during a cold start of the engine, the low pressure fuel hose at that connection may experience slight fuel weeping". MB USA, however, ruled out a safety risk. NHTSA needs to investigate it. If MB USA found the fuel pressure line is defective, they needed to do a recall. I believe it must be a recall as fuel leaks is not only a safety risk but also a serious health hazard to the occupants. What if the occupants have sinusitis and don't smell well. What if the leaks is too small to smell enough but can still be a health issue.

On August 18th, 2021 the roof panel between the windshield and the panoramic roof completely detached while driving on the highway. Luckily no accidents or injuries are reported. Safety recall for this issue has been issued since March 2021 but the factory hasn't produced the parts to send to the dealerships to make the necessary repair to this day. The car is currently unusable and unsafe to drive. Even if the dealership attempts to re-attach another panel they won't have the right adhesive, instructions, and panels that the engineers in the Mercedes factory redesigned to remedy this issue.

For the past several weeks the seat belt warning light goes on and the chime sounds intermittently while I am driving with the driver seat belt engaged. Also; while this is happening, the seat belt pretensioner repeatedly deactivates and activates. The vehicle is available for inspection at my home in Pleasant View, Utah. Can my safety be compromised if the pretensioner is not activated? Will the driver air bag function if it thinks the seat is empty? The Mercedes Dealer was no help; all the Customer Service person could tell me was there was not a Recall on my vehicle. "Just make an appointment and we will do a Diagnostic Inspection for $179." I have made an appointment with my local Mechanic on Thursday, July 29, and hope that he can fix it.

WHEEL LIPS ON THIS VEHICLE DEFORM WITH LITTLE PROVOCATION RESULTING IN RAPID AIR LOSS, LOSS OF HANDLING AND IN EXTREME CASES A CRASH. THE SHAPE OF THESE WHEELS DEVIATES FROM OTHER ALLOY WHEELS IN A WAY THAT PROMOTES THIS BEHAVIOR. THE CURVE OF THE RIM BARREL BETWEEN THE LIPS (ALSO KNOW AS THE BELL) IS MUCH SHALLOWER THAN MANY OTHER WHEELS. THE RESULT IS THAT THE ANGLE AT WHICH THE BARREL MEETS THE LIPS IS CLOSER TO A RIGHT ANGLE THAN COMMON. THE BARREL MEETING THE LIP AT AN ANGLE CLOSER TO PARALLEL WITH THE PAVEMENT GREATLY INCREASE THE RISK THAT SUDDEN DEFLATION COULD OCCUR RESULTING IN THE AFOREMENTIONED SAFETY ISSUES.
