I WAS DRIVING TO MEET A FRIEND FOR LUNCH. I CAME UP UPON A STOP LIGHT THAT WAS ALREADY RED AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE THIRD CAR IN LINE. I CAME TO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A STOP. I WAS ABOUT A CAR LENGTH OR MORE BEHIND THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. NEXT THING I KNOW, I HEAR A LOUD BANG AS MY CAR HAD ACCELERATED INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE. THAT CAR, IN TURN, HIT THE CAR IN FRONT OF THEM. I WAS VERY CONFUSED. I RECEIVED A TRAFFIC TICKET FOR UNCONTROLLED SPEED. THE POLICEMAN THOUGHT I WAS I WAS CRAZY WHEN I SAID THAT I HAD COME TO A STOP. THE CAR WAS DRIVABLE, SO I STILL WENT TO LUNCH WITH MY FRIEND. NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER WITH PARKING OR DRIVING THE CAR TO THE RESTAURANT, WHICH WAS ABOUT 1 MILE AWAY. AFTER LUNCH, I THEN NEEDED TO RUN AN ERRAND BEFORE I WENT HOME. I DROVE ABOUT 2 BLOCKS AWAY FROM THE RESTAURANT AND PULLED INTO A SHOPPING CENTER. I THEN SLOWLY PULLED INTO A PARKING SPOT BETWEEN TWO OTHER CARS. AS MY CAR HIT THE CURB, IT THEN WENT OVER THE CURB, ONTO THE SIDEWALK AND SLAMMED INTO THE CONCRETE WALL OF ONE OF THE SHOPS. I WAS ABLE TO GET HOME, VERY SHAKEN, AND RESEARCHED ON THE INTERNET. EVERYTHING I FOUND INDICATED IT WAS SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION (SUA). I TOLD MY INSURANCE COMPANY AND ALSO CALLED MERCEDES BENZ USA. I HAD MY CAR TOWED TO THE MERCEDES COLLISION REPAIR SHOP. MERCEDES DID A RECORDED CONVERSATION AND SAID NOT TO HAVE THE CAR REPAIRED AND THEY WOULD LOOK AT IT. THEY WERE DEFENSIVE WHEN I MENTION SUA, BUT MY MAT IS VELCROED ON AND IT HAPPENED TWICE IN ONE DAY. AFTER THE SECOND COLLISION, I SAW A MESSAGE ON MY DASH THAT SAID : ?COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS INOPERATIVE". MY AIRBAGS NEVER DEPLOYED. I CHECKED AT THE MERCEDES COLLISION CENTER TODAY AND WAS TOLD MERCEDES REMOVED A BLACK RECORDING BOX FROM MY CAR. I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING BACK AS OF YET.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING TO WORK ON A FREEWAY I SUDDENLY HEARD A BLASTING SOUND AND NEXT THING WHAT I SAW WAS THERE WERE GLASS PIECES EVERYWHERE ON MY BODY AND IN THE CAR. THE PANORAMIC MOON ROOF OF MY CAR EXPLODED OUT OF NO REASON. I AM VERY SURE THAT NOTHING HIT THE ROOF OR FALL ON THE ROOF. THE FREEWAY WAS WIDE OPEN AND FORTUNATELY I WAS WEARING SUNGLASSES SO MY EYES DIDN'T HURT BY THE EXPLOSION. HOWEVER, AFTER TAKING A MEDICAL LEAVE FROM WORK AND HAVING CHECKED UP AT THE HOSPITAL I DECIDED TO TAKE THE CAR TO MBENZ DEALERSHIP TO REPORT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAR AND KNOW WHY IT HAPPENED. SURPRISINGLY INSTEAD OF LOOKING INTO THE INCIDENT THEY DECIDED TO AVOID THE ISSUE AND INDIRECTLY ACCUSED ME OF CAUSING IT BY MYSELF. I WAS VERY SHOCKED AND DISAPPOINTED BY THE WAY A SITUATION AND THE CUSTOMER WAS HANDLED. I'D URGE NHTSA TO TAKE FURTHER ACTION TO MAKE SURE SUCH INCIDENTS DO NOT HAPPEN TO OTHER MBENZ CAR OWNERS. WHILE DOING RESEARCH ON INTERNET I FOUND OUT THAT MY INCIDENT IS NOT THE ONLY INCIDENT , THERE ARE MANY OTHER MBENZ OWNERS REPORTED THE SAME COMPLAINT ABOUT SUDDEN SHATTERING OF THEIR GLASS ROOF.
