Summary of Complaint

My radio completely turned off & the whole colonization system is shut down. I cannot control anything like changing the time or lights in my car & I have no working screen. The screen is completely black & nothing turns on or works. It randomly turned off one day & hasn’t come back on. I took it to the dealership & they want me to pay $2,500 to get it fixed. I did not cause this issue, the car itself caused this. I do not think I should have to pay for something I did not cause.

Summary of Complaint

We received a recall notice advising that the stationary roof panel located between the windshield and sunroof was not bonded correctly and could full detach from the vehicle. while driving on the freeway I heard a wind noise coming from the roof and then without warning the roof panel flew off the vehicle onto the freeway lanes. The piece was not recovered due to the danger of stopping on freeway. This posed an immediate safety threat to us and other drivers. When I contacted Mercedes (both local dealer and MBUSA) I was told they would not honor the recall since it is still in pending not open. Nowhere is a time frame listed on recall and I did confirm with local MB they have the parts needed to replace this piece. MB only option was we have to pay for the repair (apprx $1500-1900) and "possibly" receive a reimbursement. The letter specifically states free of charge to complete this recall. I was given a possible time the recall goes to open in Aug or Oct, but no guaranty. As of now my vehicle has an open roof section.

WHILE MERGING ONTO THE FREEWAY ON 1/22/2021 THE CAR'S DASHBOARD DISPLAYED "COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS INOPERATIVE " AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON. WHEN THIS HAPPENED, IT PREVENTED ME FROM ACCELERATING THE CAR BY PUSHING ONTO THE GAS PEDAL. THIS CAUSED THE CAR FROM BEHIND TO ALMOST REAR ENDED BY CAR.
