TAKATA RECALL. I HAVE BEEN WAITING OVER 3 YEARS FOR THE DEFECTIVE AIRBAGS IN MY VEHICLE TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF TIME TO WAIT FOR THE REPAIR OF SUCH A DANGEROUS SAFETY PROBLEM. THOUGH TAKATA MADE THE DEFECTIVE AIRBAG, MERCEDES BENZ SOLD THE VEHICLE AND SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR REPAIRING THE DEFECT IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME. THAT TIME HAS ALREADY PASSED. IN A RECENT LETTER MERCEDES INDICATED THAT "[MY] SAFETY IS OF UTMOST CONCERN TO MERCEDES BENZ". MB SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SELL ANOTHER NEW VEHICLE IN THE UNITED STATES UNTIL THEY HAVE RELIED THE POTENTIAL DANGEROUS OF ALL DEFECTIVE AIRBAGS INSTALLED IN THEIR VEHICLES.

Summary of Complaint

ON 4/24/16, A TOYOTA REAR ENDED ME AND PUSHED ME INTO THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME. THE DAMAGE WOULD HAVE BEEN REPAIRABLE UNTIL MY CAR CAUGHT ON FIRE. IT LOOKED LIKE IT STARTED IN THE INSIDE ABOVE THE GAS TANK AREA, BUT THE MAN WORKING AT THE IMPOUND LOT THE NEXT DAY SAID IT LOOKED ELECTRICAL. EITHER WAY, THE IMPACT SHOULD NOT CAUSE A MERCEDES TO CATCH ON FIRE. I WAS ON A CITY STREET STOPPED AT A STOPLIGHT.

Summary of Complaint

THAT SATURDAY I HAD MY 30,000 MILE SERVICE AT ESTATE MOTORS IN GOLDENS BRIDGE, NY. THE DEALER ALSO DID AN "OPEN RECALL". THEY DEDUCTED $20 FROM MY BILL TO GET A CAR WASH. I DROVE DIRECTLY TO A CAR WASH ON ROUTE 202 IN NEW MILFORD, CT. ABOUT 3:00 PM, I WAS THIRD IN LINE AND AS THE TWO CARS AHEAD EDGED FORWARD, TURNING LEFT TO GO IN, I NUDGED MY GAS PEDAL AND THE VEHICLE TOOK OFF LIKE A ROCKET, GLANCED OFF THE CAR BUMPER AHEAD, RAN OVER ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT AND A 3 FOOT TALL TREE, WENT HALFWAY OVER A 3 FOOT HIGH WALL AND WAS STOPPED BY SMASHING INTO A TREE. NOBODY WAS HURT. I HAD KEPT MY SEAT BELT ON AND WAS ONLY SLIGHTLY BRUISED. AT FIRST I THOUGHT I MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG, AS I TOLD THE POLICE, BUT REALIZED LATER THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. I AM A GOOD AND CAREFUL DRIVER AS ALL RECORDS WILL ATTEST. I COULD NOT HAVE JAMMED MY FOOT DOWN ON THE GAS PEDAL. I LATER FOUND THAT THE "OPEN RECALL" HAD TO DO WITH A CAM SOLENOID, WHICH IS INVOLVED WITH THE FLOW OF GASOLINE INTO THE MOTOR. I ALSO FOUND ON GOOGLE THREE ALMOST IDENTICAL INCIDENTS REPORTED ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL AND YEAR. TAKE A LOOK. I FIND IT VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THIS IS JUST A COINCIDENCE. S MERCEDES BENZ HAS BEEN UNCOOPERATIVE AND STATES THEIR INSPECTION SHOWED NOTHING WRONG WITH THE RELEVANT PARTS OF MY SUV. AFTER THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE AND REPAIR, I THINK ONE CAN BE SKEPTICAL ABOUT THEIR OPINION. HOW COULD THEY KNOW WHAT THE CAR WAS LIKE BEFORE THIS? MERCEDES DENIES ANY RESPONSIBILITY. AS I AM DEEPLY UPSET BY THE COST TO MY INSURANCE COMPANY FOR SOMETHING I DO NOT BELIEVE IS MY FAULT, THE FUTURE INCREASES IN INSURANCE RATES THAT WILL FOLLOW, THE $560 LOST IN THE 30,000 MILE CHECK-UP AND MY $1000 DEDUCTIBLE, THE LOSS OF VALUE OF MY CAR, AND BY THE INSENSITIVITY AND RUDENESS OF MERCEDES BENZ, WHOSE STAFF FAILS TO RETURN PHONE CALLS AND IS GENERALLY UNCOOPERATIVE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

Lately, everytime I filled up the gas tank, I can smell gas from the rear left area. After some time when the tank is maybe a little over half the smell is gone. I assume there is a leak somewhere from the fill pipe to the tank. Maybe a bad rubber connector, gasket/seal failure? The vehicle has never been involved in any crash. Normal usage. Low mileage. Should this be covered by MB warranty at no cost to the owner? Thank you.

Summary of Complaint

OUR CAR HAS DEVELOPED A SERIOUS FUEL LEAK ON THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR. WHEN THE TANK IS FILLED TO CAPACITY, OR NEAR CAPACITY, A SERIOUS GASOLINE ODOR DEVELOPS. THE OTHER NIGHT WHEN WE DISCOVERED THIS PROBLEM, OUR ENTIRE HOME BECAME ENGULFED IN THESE FUMES AND WE HAD TO REMOVE THE CAR FROM THE GARAGE AND PUT IT OUT ON THE STREET. ALSO, WHEN WE MOVED THE CAR OUT OF THE GARAGE, WE NOTICED GASOLINE WAS DRIPPING FROM UNDER THE CAR AND FORMED TRAIL OF GAS ALL THE WAY OUT INTO THE STREET. THE LEAK IS CAUSED BY A FAULTY FUEL FILTER/FILTER HOUSING. THIS PARTICULAR PART IS WHAT WAS RECALLED AND REPLACED BY MERCEDES BENZ IN THE 20011 AND 2012 MODEL YEARS. OUR CAR IS A MODEL YEAR 2010, BUT IT HAS THE SAME FUEL FILTER (PART #2214700390 FROM AUTOHAUS AZ)) AND IF YOU SHOP FOR A NEW ONE, YOU CAN SEE IT IS THE SAME FOR THE YEARS 2010 THRU 2012. THE FUEL FILTER IS AT THE TOP OF THE TANK AND CAN EASILY BE REPLACED BY REMOVING THE RIGHT REAR PASSENGER SEAT. HOWEVER, THE ODOR AND FUMES AT TIMES WILL ENTER THE CABIN OF THE VEHICLE, AND IF THE CAR IS PARKED ON AN INCLINE, LEANING FROM RIGHT TO LEFT, I AM SURE GAS CAN TRAVEL ACROSS THE UNDERCARRIAGE AND OVER THE HOT EXHAUST.

THE VEHICLE IS A MERCEDES BENZ DEALERSHIP IN RALEIGH, NC ON CAPITAL BLVD BECAUSE IT WILL NOT START. THERE'S A STEERING LOCK PROBLEM AND I WAS TOLD THAT ONLY CERTAIN VIN NUMBERS IS COVERED FOR THIS YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL. MY VEHICLE HAS APPROXIMATELY 80,000 MILES. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS VEHICLE IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE SAME RECALL (STARTED JAN 25, 2019) BEING IT'S HAVING THE SAME ISSUE AT THE SAME TIME AS THE OTHER VEHICLES. THE VEHICLE WAS AT CAPITAL CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP AND THEY HAD IT TOWED TO MERCEDES BENZ DEALERSHIP AND I WAS TOLD IT WOULDN'T START. CAPITAL CHEVROLET SAID THAT THE MERCEDES DEALERSHIP SAID IT COULD HAPPEN AT ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE. I WAS TOLD THE COST IS ON ME. AFTER SOME RESEARCH I FOUND OUT THERES A RECALL ON MY YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL BUT NOT MY VEHICLE WHICH IS CURRENTLY AT THE DEALERSHIP WITH THE SAME ISSUE. CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHY THIS VERY LOW MILEAGE VEHICLE IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM AND MYSELF AND MY GRANDCHILDREN COULD LOSE OUR LIVES IF IT HAPPENED WITH US WHILE OCCUPYING THE VEHICLE, WHO WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RECALL AND OUR LIVES?
