VIN: WDDUG8CB6EA****

Summary of Complaint

THIS PAST THURSDAY EVENING (DECEMBER 13, 2018) AROUND 10:00 PM, I WAS DRIVING (WITH MY WIFE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT) DOWN A CURVY STRETCH OF ROAD ON SUNSET BOULEVARD IN BEVERLY HILLS, WHEN I SUDDENLY HEARD A LOUD THUMPING SOUND AND IMMEDIATELY FELT VIOLENT VIBRATIONS THROUGH THE STEERING WHEEL. SINCE WE WERE TRAVELING AT A RELATIVELY LOW SPEED OF 30 MPH, I WAS IMMEDIATELY ABLE TO RE-GAIN THE CONTROL OF MY VEHICLE AND WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER SAFELY. ONCE I GOT OUT OF MY VEHICLE, I IMMEDIATELY NOTICED THAT THE FRONT RIGHT WHEEL RIM HAD COMPLETELY BROKEN INTO TWO HALVES. I WAS SHOCKED AND VERY SURPRISED BECAUSE NOTHING COULD HAVE POSSIBLY EXPLAINED WHY THIS WHEEL COMPLETELY BROKE IN THE MANNER THAT IT DID. WE WERE EXTREMELY FORTUNATE THAT THERE WERE NO OTHER VEHICLES AROUND US AT THE TIME THE WHEEL BROKE, OR THAT WE WERE NOT ON THE HIGHWAY TRAVELING AT MUCH HIGHER SPEEDS, OTHERWISE THE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN FATAL WITH EVEN A POSSIBILITY OF SIGNIFICANT INJURY OR EVEN LOSS OF LIFE. A COMPLETE REPORT WITH PICTURES AND CAUSE OF RAPID FRACTURE OF THE RIM AS A COMPLAINT WAS PROVIDED TO MERCEDES DEALERSHIP AND CORPORATE, THEY ARE REFUSING TO ADMIT TO ANY MATERIAL DEFECT AND LIABILITY.

Summary of Complaint

ACCORDING TO THE RECALL NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 16V899000 AND THE VEHICLE INSPECTION REPORT FROM THE LOCAL MERCEDES DEALERSHIP SHOW AS AN IDENTICAL ISSUE. HOWEVER, MY VEHICLE IS NOT IDENTIFIED AS APART OF THE RECALL. THE RECALL STATES THE ISSUE IS DUE TO THE STEERING CONTROL UNIT NOT BEING SOLDERED PROPERLY. DIFFICULT TO THINK THIS FALLS UNDER NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR. I WILL GET THE REPAIR DONE BEGRUDGINGLY, THOUGH IT WOULD BE NICE IF MERCEDES WOULD HAVE STOOD BEHIND ITS RECALL.

THIS VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED NEW IN 2014. THE VEHICLE HAS A REVERSE TILT FUNCTION FEATURE ON THE RIGHT PASSENGER MIRROR. WHEN FUNCTIONING PROPERLY, THE RIGHT PASSENGER MIRROR TILTS DOWNWARD AND TO THE RIGHT WHEN THE VEHICLE IS PLACED IN REVERSE SO THAT THE DRIVER CAN SEE ALL OBJECTS TO THE RIGHT REAR OF THE VEHICLE (IN THE VEHICLE'S BLIND SPOT). ONCE THE VEHICLE IS SHIFTED INTO DRIVE, THE RIGHT MIRROR IS SUPPOSED TO RETURN TO THE DRIVER'S (MEMORY) SETTING POSITION FOR THE MIRROR SO THAT THE DRIVER IS ABLE TO SEE OUT OF THE RIGHT MIRROR WHEN DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. THE MIRROR ON THIS VEHICLE FAILS TO RETURN TO THE DRIVER'S (MEMORY) SETTING AFTER SHIFTING THE VEHICLE INTO DRIVE AFTER BEING IN REVERSE. THE MIRROR REMAINS IN THE DOWNWARD AND TO THE RIGHT POSITION THUS LEAVING THE DRIVER COMPLETELY UNABLE TO SEE OUT OF THE MIRROR WHEN DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. THE DRIVER IS FORCED TO TAKE HIS/HER EYES OFF OF THE ROAD, AND THE SURROUNDING VEHICLES, TO MANUALLY ADJUST THE MIRROR THUS PLACING THE DRIVER AND ALL PASSENGERS AT A SIGNIFICANT RISK OF INJURY. WHILE IT IS UNCONFIRMED, THIS VEHICLE WAS INVOLVED IN A SIDE-SWIPE TYPE MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT, AND IT IS SUSPECTED THAT THIS MIRROR DEFECT WAS A CONTRIBUTING CAUSE TO THE ACCIDENT. MERCEDES-BENZ USA IS AWARE OF THIS DEFECT AND IS AWARE THAT AT LEAST TWO CASES HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN THE UNITED STATES IN THE 2014 S550 MODEL. MERCEDES-BENZ USA IS ALSO AWARE THAT THIS DEFECT EXISTS IN THE 2015 S550 MODEL.
