Summary of Complaint

A Summary of the May 9, 2021, event follows: 6:30 a.m: I Woke up, put on gym clothes and shoes and drove to gym (1 mile from home). 7:01:40 a.m. Turned into the gym parking lot and slowly inched into a parking space. (my Mercedes rides low in the front so I pull in slowly so the block will not scrape my bumper). 7:02:00 a.m. As I pull slowly into the parking space the car stalls and the engine begins revving very loud. I firmly press my right foot (foot was already on the brake as I was inching into the space) on the brake because the car is still making that revving sound. 7:02:15 a.m. The car is at a complete stop for some time. The engine begins revving even louder and surges forward (foot was still on the brake) four feet. The car hits the brick gym building and comes to a standstill. I turn off the engine and sit there stunned. ( A witness signed a statement and said "car was at a complete stop for some time...thought driver would open her door and get out but then the car suddenly surged forward and hit the building"). After getting out of my car and inspecting the wrecked car, I notice the gas cap is open and I shut it. The police show up, and say "no police report" will be made. I have some injuries (concussion, bruises over full torso and legs) but I treat patients with TBIs so self-diagnosed and treated my injuries without seeking additional medical attention. On May 9, 2021, I call CSAA and report the accident. After several conversations with CSAA Claims Advisor Karl Arnold, it appears the car frame is damaged, and repair costs exceed value of car. The building had no damage. I then attempted to access relevant data on the EDR and was misled by the Mercedes Fairfield dealership, Service Unit. I was told by Josh “the data is irretrievable, and you can’t get it”. I asked why would Congress pass the EDR in to law making EDRs mandatory and data belongs to owner, if it is not retrievable? He had no answer. [xxx] PARTS OF THIS DOCUMENT HAVE BEEN REDACTED TO PROTECT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *cc

I OWN A LUXURY, VERY EXPENSIVE MODEL. PER THE RECALL, THE FAULTY AIR BAG IS DANGEROUS. IT STATED THAT: ' UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES DURING A CRASH THAT NECESSITATES FRONTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT, THE DEFECT IN YOUR PASSENGER-SIDE FRONTAL AIRBAG INFLATOR MAY CAUSE THE INFLATOR TO EXPLODE. A PASSENGER-SIDE INFLATOR EXPLOSION DURING DEPLOYMENT COULD RESULT IN METAL FRAGMENTS STRIKING THE FRONT PASSENGER OR OTHER OCCUPANTS, POSSIBLY CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.' I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY CAR. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM AND IT IS THEIR OBLIGATION TO CORRECT A DEFECT THAT IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE. SAFETY RISK: ACCORDING TO TAKATA, IN THE EVENT OF AN INFLATOR EXPLOSION, METAL FRAGMENTS COULD PASS THROUGH THE AIR BAG CUSHION MATERIAL, WHICH MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH TO VEHICLE OCCUPANTS. REMEDY: AN AUTHORIZED MERCEDES-BENZ DEALER WILL REPLACE THE PASSENGER-SIDE AIRBAG. PLEASE ADVISE HOW I CAN RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AND HAVE THE NECESSARY REPAIR COMPLETED NOW. I CANNOT WAI ANY LONGER, OTHER WISE, I WILL SEEK LEGAL DAMAGES. I WOULD PREFER A FASTER WAY TO RESOLVE THIS RATHER THAN GOING TO COURT.

Summary of Complaint

I TOOK MY CAR IN FOR ITS ANNUAL SERVICE ON JANUARY 21, 2021, AND WAS TOLD THAT THE REAR SUBFRAME AND BRAKE LINES WERE SO BADLY RUSTED THAT THE CAR WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE. THE ENTIRE SUBFRAME AND REAR LEFT AND RIGHT BRAKE LINES HAD TO BE REPLACED AT A COST OF $5,300 (MERCEDES BENZ USA GAVE ME A "GOOD WILL" DISCOUNT SO I PAID LESS THAN THAT AMOUNT). I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE AND I TAKE METICULOUS CARE OF IT. IT IS PARKED IN A GARAGE, RECEIVES EVERY RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE CHECK AT THE SAME MECHANIC (EURO MOTORCARS BETHESDA, MD) AND HAS LOW MILEAGE FOR ITS AGE. ONLY ONE YEAR AND 7,000 MILES HAD ELAPSED BETWEEN THE CAR'S LAST SERVICE AND THE DISCOVERY OF THE CORROSION. IN OTHER WORDS, IN JUST ONE YEAR THE SUBFRAME OF THE CAR CORRODED TO THE EXTENT THAT IT WAS SO UNSAFE TO DRIVE THAT ACCORDING TO THE MECHANIC I AM LUCKY THAT I DID NOT GET INTO AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE OWNED MANY CARS THROUGHOUT MY LIFE FOR UPWARDS OF 10 YEARS AND NONE OF THEM HAVE HAD RUST CORROSION ISSUES. I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING DEFECTIVE WITH THE MATERIALS MERCEDES BENZ USED ON THIS VEHICLE'S SUBFRAME. THE NHTSA DATABASE SHOWS THAT ANOTHER PERSON WITH THE SAME VEHICLE (WHO COINCIDENTALLY SEEMS TO HAVE PURCHASED HIS CAR AT THE SAME DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED MINE - EURO MOTORCARS BETHESDA) ALSO FILED A COMPLAINT FOR THE EXACT SAME ISSUE. HOW MANY OTHER OWNERS HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM BUT DON'T KNOW THAT THEY CAN FILE A SAFETY COMPLAINT WITH THE NHTSA? THE MECHANIC TOOK A SHORT VIDEO OF THE CORROSION THAT I AM NOT ATTACHING TO THIS COMPLAINT; PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO SEND IT.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A MODEL YEAR 2013 MERCEDES E350 THAT HAS A SAFETY DEFECT WITH RUSTED BRAKE LINES THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY YOUR AGENCY. DURING A RECENT VISIT TO THE MERCEDES DEALER (EUROMOTORCARS IN BETHESDA, MARYLAND), I WAS INFORMED THAT MY CAR HAS SEVERELY RUSTED BRAKE LINES THAT NEED TO BE REPLACED IMMEDIATELY AT A COST OF ABOUT $3300. I SUBSEQUENTLY HAD MY CAR INSPECTED BY AN INDEPENDENT REPAIR SHOP (STAR CAR AUTO SERVICE IN ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND) THAT CONFIRMED THE DEALER'S DIAGNOSIS THAT THE BRAKE LINES ARE RUSTED AND NEED TO BE REPLACE. THE SERVICE ADVISOR AT THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME HE HAS SEEN THIS ISSUE ON MANY CARS LIKE MINE. AS A RETIRED SENIOR, I HAVE OWED NUMEROUS VEHICLES (ONE CAR I OWNED FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS) AND NEVER HAD TO HAVE THE BRAKE LINES REPLACED ON ANY OF MY CARS. HAVING TO REPLACE THE BRAKE LINE ON A SEVEN YEAR OLD CAR WITH ONLY 37,000 MILES IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BY ANY STANDARD AND SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY YOUR AGENCY. I HAVE ATTACHED THE ESTIMATE FROM THE DEALER AND PICTURES TAKEN BY THE DEALER OF THE RUSTED BRAKE LINES. I AM CONCERNED FOR MY FAMILY'S SAFETY AND FOR OTHERS ON THE ROAD AS A BRAKE LINE FAILURE COULD CAUSE A SERIOUS ACCIDENT RESULTING IN INJURY OR DEATH. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS SERIOUS ISSUE OF RUSTING BRAKE LINES ON MY 2013 MERCEDES E350.

Summary of Complaint

THE ELECTRIC STEERING COLUMN ADJUSTMENT TO MOVE STEERING WHEEL UP AND/OR DOWN (TILT FEATURE) HAS BECOMES INOPERABLE (THE TELESCOPIC ADJUSTMENT FEATURE STILL WORKS). THIS MAKES PROPER STEERING WHEEL AND AIR BAG LOCATION IMPOSSIBLE. IT WAS FIRST NOTICED UPON STARTING THE CAR AT WORK THAT THE STEERING WHEEL REMAINED IN THE UP POSITION (ENTRY/EXIT). THIS APPARENTLY IS A KNOWN AND COMMON PROBLEM THAT IMPACTS MULTIPLE MODELS AND MODEL YEARS. MY FRIEND'S 2013 C250 ALSO HAD THIS PROBLEM, BUT WAS REPAIRED UNDER A RECALL / TSB. THE BROKEN PART IS INEXPENSIVE, BUT THE LABOR REQUIRES REMOVAL OF THE LOWER DRIVER'S DASH COMPONENTS, WHICH CAN BE COSTLY.
