IN OUR MERCEDES THE HVAC SYSTEM HAS A DEFECT WHERE IT DOESN'T PROPERLY VENTILATE & GROWS MOLD THAT SMELLS UP THE CAR. THERE HAS BEEN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ABOUT THIS EXACT PROBLEM AND IN THE LAWSUIT THEY STATE THAT NO AMOUNT OF REPAIRS CAN FIX IT.

LOW PRESSURE FUEL LINE NEEDED REPLACING. THIS WAS DUE TO A FUEL SMELL IN THE CABIN WHEN COLD. MERCEDES INDICATED FUEL LINES ARE CONSIDERED WEAR AND TEAR AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS LEAKING , WAS NOT COVERED UNDER PRE OWNED WARRANTY OR RECALL. THE FUEL LINE APPEARS CRACKED DUE TO MISINSTALLATION VS RUBBER CRACKING DUE TO AGE AS ONE SIDE WAS PRISTINE AND THE OTHER HAD A CRACK IN IT. THIS IS NOTICEABLE AT IDLE , WHEN THE CAR IS COLD AND THE HEAT IS BLOWING.

STRONG FUEL SMELL IN THE CABIN WHEN I START THE CAR IN THE MORNING. I'M SEEING THIS AS A COMMON ISSUE IN THREADS ONLINE. CAR OUT OF WARRANTY SO NEED HELP MAKING THIS A RECALL ITEM GIVEN THE DANGER OF FUEL LEAKS. SOLUTIONS POSTED ARE BELOW: 1) QUOTE FROM MY INVOICE: CONFIRMED FUEL LEAK WAS COMING FROM LINE TO HIGH PRESSURE PUMP. REMOVED LOWER PANEL OF TRANSMISSION TO GAIN ACCESS TO LINES. REMOVED HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP COVERS, REMOVED AND INSTALLED FUEL LINES, AND INSTALLED IN REVERSE ORDER TO CORRECT. RAN ENGINE TO VERIFY NO LARGE FUEL LEAKS. FOUND GOOD AT THIS TIME. 2) HAVE YOUR DEALER REPLACE THE TWO FLEXIBLE FUEL LINES FROM THE FUEL FEED LINE TO THE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP.THERE IS NO OFFICIAL BULLETIN ON THIS BUT THIS IS THE FIX.

I AM IN AN MBFOURM AND I AM STARTING TO HEAR OF ENGINE FAILURE AT AN EARLY AGE. I HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED THIS, YET. BUT, FROM WHAT I AM READING IN THE FORUMS, A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THE SAME MODEL ENGINE I HAVE IN MY 2017 MERCEDES E300 ARE HAVING ISSUES WHERE THE PISTON CRACKS AND THEY NEED A NEW ENGINE. MERCEDES ISN'T PAYING FOR ENGINE REPLACEMENTS AND IT IS ALL OUT OF POCKET COST. I AM WORRIED THAT ONCE MY WARRANTY IS OVER AND MY ENGINE BLOWS BECAUSE OF MERCEDES DESIGNS FLAW, I WILL END UP SPENDING 9-10K FOR A NEW ENGINE BECAUSE OF A DESIGN FLAW.

Summary of Complaint

THIS IS A COMPLAINT ABOUT THE LACK OF RESPONSE BY MERCEDES BENZ IN REPLACING THE DEFECTIVE TAKATA PASSENGER AIRBAG. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT MERCEDES BENZ HAS ADDRESSED ONLY 35% OF RECALLED MODELS AS OPPOSED TO HONDA WHO HAS ALREADY RESPONDED TO 85% OF THE RECALLED MODELS, REPLACING THE DEFECTIVE AIRBAGS IN QUESTION. I CALLED THE DAYTONA MERCEDES BENZ DEALER WHEN I RECEIVED THE RECALL NOTICE IN JANUARY 2019 REQUESTING THAT THE DEFECTIVE PASSENGER AIRBAG BE REPLACED. THEY REPLIED THAT THE PART WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND WOULD NOTIFY ME WHEN IT WOULD BE AVAILABLE. AS OF TWO DAYS AGO, OCTOBER 14, 2020 I HAD NOT HEARD FROM THE DEALER OR FROM MERCEDES BENZ. SINCE THEN I HAVE FOUND DOCUMENTATION AS TO THE DANGER OF THIS AIRBAG AND HOW IT HAS KILLED OR INJURED HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE. ARE WE EXPECTED TO DRIVE THIS CAR UNDER THESE CONDITIONS? DOES MERCEDES BENZ GIVE A HOOT ABOUT ITS CUSTOMERS? I AM NOT DRIVING MY CAR BECAUSE IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH FOR THESE AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY. THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING IN MY GARAGE EVEN THOUGH I AM PAYING TAXES AND INSURANCE ON IT. I AM 79 YEARS OLD LIVING ON A SMALL PENSION AND DO NOT THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO SELL THIS CAR WITH THIS RECALL PENDING. YESTERDAY I CALLED MERCEDES BENZ CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THEY REPLIED THAT THE PART WILL BE AVAILABLE IN NOVEMBER 2020. I AM FILING THIS CLAIM WITH NHTSA TO NOTIFY YOU THAT I AM ONE OF THE AFFECTED CUSTOMERS AND WILL BE NOTIFYING YOU AGAIN WHETHER OR NOT THE PART IS REPLACED IN NOVEMBER. FOLLOW THROUGH.

Summary of Complaint

AT AROUND 2.15 PM CST, I WAS DRIVING MY MERCEDES WESTBOUND ON I-694 TOWARDS MINNEAPOLIS AT ROUGHLY 70 MPH WHEN SUDDENLY MY E300 STALLED AND BY THE TIME I COULD FIGURE WHAT WAS WRONG, I LOST ALL POWER IN THE STEERING WHEEL. THE MERCEDES BRAKE ASSIST TRIGGERED A HARD BRAKE AND MY CAR STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE LANE ON THE FREEWAY. THE CAR BEHIND ME NEARLY MISSED ME AND AT THIS POINT EVERY LIGHT IN THE DASHBOARD LIT UP (I HAVE ATTACHED THE PICTURE BELOW). I TRIED HITTING ON THE IGNITION MULTIPLE TIMES BUT GOT NO RESPONSE. AT THIS POINT, I DECIDED NOT TO SIT IN THE CAR SINCE IT WAS TOO DANGEROUS WITH FAST ONCOMING TRAFFIC AND IT WAS ONLY GOING TO BE A MATTER OF TIME THAT SOMEONE WOULD REAR END ME. I STEPPED OUT OF MY CAR AND WHILE MULTIPLE CARS WERE APPROACHING ME AT HIGH SPEED FROM BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT LANES I FOUND A VERY SMALL WINDOW OF TIME (2-3 SECONDS) TO SPRINT FROM THE MIDDLE LANE OF I-694 TO THE SHOULDER. MY WORRY WAS STILL FAR FROM OVER AS MY CAR WAS STILL SITTING IN MIDDLE OF THE INTERSTATE AND NOW I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF OTHER FOLKS WHO WERE TRAVELING IN MY DIRECTION. I SAW 12 TO 15 CARS ALMOST REAR END MY CAR. WHILE THIS WAS HAPPENING, I REALIZED MY PHONE WAS DEAD AND I WAS UNABLE TO CALL 911. I CONTINUALLY WAVED AT THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC TO ALERT THEM OF MY CAR AND REQUESTED THEM TO CALL 911. ABOUT 7 TO 9 MINUTES LATER, THE STATE HIGHWAY PATROL SHOWED UP AND BLOCKED TRAFFIC TO ASSIST ME WITH MOVING MY CAR TO THE SHOULDER. THESE 7 TO 9 MINUTES WERE THE MOST TRAUMATIC I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. I FELT HELPLESS, ANXIOUS, AND EXTREMELY STRESSED OUT.

Summary of Complaint

ON SEPT. 10, 2020 WHILE DRIVING ON THE WESTBOUND LONG ISLAND EXPRESSWAY, NEAR EXIT 19,IN AN AFTERNOON RAINSTORM, MY 3 YEAR OLD MB E300 WAS FLOODED THROUGH THE REAR VIEW MIRROR MOUNT AND THE COLUMN ON THE DRIVERS' SIDE, SEPARATING THE WINDSHIELD AND DOOR. WATER CASCADED FROM THESE AREAS AND FLOODED THE FLOOR. ALL ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS ON THE FLOOR, UNDER THE FRONT SEATS, WERE SHORTED OUT. THIS BROUGHT THE CAR TO A COMPLETE AND SUDDEN STANDSTILL IN TRAFFIC ON THE HIGHWAY. THE ENGINE CONTINUED TO RUN BUT THE CAR WOULD NOT DRIVE OR MOVE, POTENTIALLY PUTTING MY LIFE IN JEOPARDY. THE SHIFT LEVER WOULD NOT PUT THE CAR INTO DRIVE, REVERSE OR NEUTRAL. THE CAR NEEDED A TOW ON A DOLLY OFF THE HIGHWAY AND IT CONTINUED TO RUN FOR HOURS. THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS WOULD NOT TURN OFF AND THE WINDOWS COULD NOT BE SHUT. JUST ABOUT EVERY WARNING LIGHT IN EXISTENCE WAS ON IN THE DASHBOARD. THE ENGINE WAS FINALLY SHUT DOWN, AFTER OVER 4 HOURS, WHEN THE CAR ARRIVED AT RALLYE MERCEDES BENZ IN ROSLYN, NY. THIS SUDDEN STOP, IN A RUNNING CAR, ON A LIMITED ACCESS HIGHWAY COULD OF BEEN DEADLY. THE CAR HAD RECENTLY BEEN SERVICED AT RALLYE MOTORS.

AFTER SITTING IN TRAFFIC FOR ABOUT THREE MINUTES UNABLE TO RESTART THE CAR, I JUST KEPT HITTING THE START / STOP BUTTON AND IT FINALLY TURNED OVER AND STARTED. I REPORTED THIS INCIDENT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD THEY WOULD WORK ON THE CAR IF IT HAPPENED AGAIN! IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN IT COULD RESULT IN A MUCH WORSE OUTCOME. I WAS DEAD IN TOWN TRAFFIC, HEADING STRAIGHT THRU A RED LIGHT AFTER A COMPLETE STOP.

Summary of Complaint

THIS SUNDAY, MY BROTHER IN LAW WAS DRIVING THE CAR AND I WAS SITTING I. PASSENGER SEAT AND MY 5 YEAR OLD NIECE IN THE BACKSEAT. SUDDENLY, THERE WAS A LOUD POP SOUND AND AFTER FEW SECONDS THE GLASS STARTED FALLING IN THE CAR FROM ABOVE, WE FOUND OUT THAT THE SUNROOF GLASS SHATTERED FOR NO REASON, NOTHING HIT THE CAR, NO POTHOLES, NOTHING AT ALL. MY BRO IN LAW DID GET HURT ON ON ARM AS A SMALL PIECE OF GLASS HIT HIM. IMMEDIATELY I CALLED MERCEDES BENZ ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE AND TOLD THEM TO PICK MY CAR FROM MY BRO IN LAWS HOUSE ONCE WE REACHED. NEXT DAY NO RESPONSE FROM MERCEDES BENZ AND AFTER 3 DAYS (TODAY IS WEDNESDAY) THE DEALERSHIP 'TEXTS' (STILL NO CALLS) SAYING THAT I WILL HAVE TO PAY $2126, THE THING IS I DON'T MIND PAYING SINCE I HAVE INSURANCE BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SAFETY FEATURES, WHEN I TOLD THAT SERVICE GUY ABOUT IT, HE SAID THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I EVEN TOLD ME ABOUT COMPLAINING IT TO YOU GUYS BUT STILL NOTHING. IT'S MERCEDES BENZ OF FOOTHILL BLVD, IRVINE, CA. APART FROM THAT, I LOOKED UP ONLINE AND I SAW FEW PEOPLE WHO HAVE SAME ISSUES AS ME (SUNROOF SHATTERING/BREAKING MERCEDES BENZ).
