Summary of Complaint

The gear selector on the steering wheel of the Mercedes Benz has a park button on it when you change the car from gear to park you press that button. That part button has stopped working. It is a safety risk as the car cannot be parked at the end of the driving and it stays in the drive mode. I have to open the door to activate the parking which is built in to the car

Summary of Complaint

ON JULY 15, 2020, I WAS INVOLVED IN A ONE CAR ACCIDENT. THE CAR LEFT THE ROADWAY ON A CURVE WHEN I LOST CONSCIOUSNESS DUE TO A MEDICAL ISSUE, AND SLID DOWN AN EMBANKMENT INTO A TREE. THE TREE PREVENTED A TOTAL ROLLOVER AND THE CAR WAS AT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE. I WAS THROWN AGAINST THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR AND SUSTAINED INJURIES. THE SIDE AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY, NEITHER DID THE FRONT AIRBAGS. THE CAR WAS TOTALED. THE SIDE AIRBAGS ARE SUPPOSED TO DEPLOY IN A SIDE IMPACT OR ROLLOVER SITUATION, BOTH OF WHICH OCCURRED. BECAUSE THEY DID NOT DEPLOY, I SUFFERED A HEAD INJURY, BROKEN RIBS FROM THE IMPACT, AND LACERATIONS FROM THE BROKEN WINDOW AND TREE. I HAVE ENCLOSED THE POLICE REPORT AND PICTURES. THE REPORT ERRONEOUSLY STATED THE AIRBAGS HAD DEPLOYED, BUT THE PICTURES CLEARLY SHOW THEY DID NOT. I HAVE MORE PICTURES, IF NEEDED.

Summary of Complaint

THIS CAR WAS PURCHASED IN CHARLOTTE NC IN WINTER OF 2018. IN NOVEMBER OF 2019, WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD WITH NO CARS IN SITE, WE HEARD A LOUD POP. WE COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT THE NOISE WAS BECAUSE IT SOUNDED LIKE A ROCK HIT THE WINDSHIELD BUT WE DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING. WE COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHERE A ROCK COULD HAVE COME FROM AS THEIR WERE NO CARS ON THE ROAD. THAT AFTERNOON WE PULLED BACK THE ROOF SCREEN TO FIND THAT THE GLASS PANORAMIC ROOF HAD CRACKED ALL OF THE WAY BACK. THE CRACK STARTED IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER OF THE CAR IN THE CURVE OF THE TOP. THE CRACK STARTED RIGHT WHERE THE WINDSHIELD AND THE ROOF COME TOGETHER. MERCEDES CONVINCED US THAT SOMETHING HAD TO HAVE HIT IT. WE MADE A CLAIM ON OUR INSURANCE AND $10,500 LATER, THE TOP WAS REPLACED. 5 MONTHS LATER AS WE WERE PULLING OUT OF OUR DRIVEWAY ONTO A 2 LANE COUNTRY ROAD, WE HEARD THE SAME NOISE AND AGAIN, PULLED THE SHADE BACK TO SEE THE ROOF HAD CRACKED ONCE MORE. BETWEEN THE TWO INCIDENTS, THE CAR HAS ONLY BEEN DRIVEN 600 MILES. THE CAR IS HARDLY EVER DRIVEN AND STAYS COVERED UP IN A CLIMATE CONTROLLED GARAGE 99% OF THE TIME. NOTHING HAS HIT THE TOP AND BROKEN THE GLASS. THE TOP BROKE IN A WAVY PATTERN JUST LIKE BEFORE. THEIR IS OBVIOUSLY A STRUCTURAL PROBLEM AS THE GLASS IS A STRUCTURAL PART OF THE CAR. THESE ARE OBVIOUSLY STRESS RELATED AND I HAVE SPOKEN TO OTHER OWNERS OF THESE CARS WHO HAVE HAD THE SAME ISSUE AND MERCEDES WILL NOT STAND BEHIND THESE REPAIRS. THEY MAKE YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE IN SOME WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DEFECT. I CANNOT KEEP FILING AN EXPENSIVE PANORAMIC ROOF REPLACEMENT ON MY INSURANCE, NOW I'M AT THE POINT TO WHERE I'M AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR DUE TO THE ROOF POSSIBLY BREAKING. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE THAT A $150,000 CAR WOULD HAVE THIS SORT OF PROBLEM. *TR

VIN: WDDUG8CB3FA****

Summary of Complaint

MY WIFE WAS DRIVING MY 2015 MERCEDES BENZ S-550 ON THE 14TH OF AUGUST, 2019. SHE HAD STOPPED AT A RED LIGHT AND WHEN IT TURNED GREEN CROSSED A 6 LANE INTERSECTION. SHE WAS MOVING THROUGH THE INTERSECTION WHEN SHE WAS HIT BY A VW PASSET WHO RAN THE RED LIGHT AT AN ESTIMATED 40 TO 50 MPH. THE PASSET HIT DEAD CENTER ON THE B PILLAR BETWEEN THE DOORS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MERCEDES. ALL AIR CURTAINS AND A REAR SEAT AIR BAG DEPLOYED ON THE UNOCCUPIED PASSENGER SIDE OF THE CAR, NONE DEPLOYED TO PROTECT DRIVER'S HEAD ABEAM THE B PILLAR.. MY WIFE'S HEAD WHIPPED VIOLENTLY TO THE RIGHT TOWARDS THE CRASH, THEN WHIPPED BACK VIOLENTLY TO THE LEFT HITTING THE LARGE SEAT BELT RETRACTOR PROTRUSION BUILT INTO THE B-PILLAR. SHE WAS BRIEFLY UNCONSCIOUS AND SUFFERED A SEVERE CONCUSSION AND MAYBE MORE AS MEDICAL TESTS ARE STILL ON GOING. IN ADDITION, SHE SUFFERED 4 HERNIATED DISCS IN HER NECK, 2 SEVERE. SHE ALSO SUFFERED AN ACUTE HERNIATED DISC IN HER LOWER BACK AS WELL AS NOW HAS SOME TMJ ISSUES WITH HER JAW AND HAS TO WEAR A MOUTHPIECE TO SLEEP. NO AIR BAGS OR SIDE AIR CURTAINS DEPLOYED ON THE DRIVERS SIDE OF THE CAR, THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED PROTECT HER HEAD AND LIKELY LESSENED THE SIDE TO SIDE WHIPLASH CAUSING THE HERNIATED DISC ISSUES. WHEN I CALLED MERCEDES BENZ TO INQUIRE WHY NO DRIVERS SIDE AIR CURTAINS OR AIR BAGS DEPLOYED, I RECEIVED A LETTER BACK SAYING THEY WERE NOT DESIGNED TO DEPLOY IN THIS CASE THE CAR, WAS A TOTAL LOSS WITH A $65,000 SETTLEMENT CHECK. MB IS SAYING ONLY THE SIDE CURTAINS ON THE SIDE THE CRASH OCCURRED DEPLOY IN THIS CASE PROTECTING NO ONE. AT THIS HIGH RATE OF SPEED, WITH MB STATING IN A LETTER THAT THE CAR'S AIR BAG PREFORMED AS PROGRAMMED, I THINK THERE IS A MAJOR SAFETY FLAW THAT LIKELY HAS CAUSED OTHER SERIOUS INJURIES OR DEATH.

Summary of Complaint

ON 10,2018 I NOTICED LOSS OF AIR PRESSURE ON THE LEFT FRONT TIRE. AFTER INFLATING THE TIRE TWICE, I BROUGHT THE CAR TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER WHO TOLD ME THAT THERE IS A CRACK ON THE RIM. AFTER 5 DAY'S THE RIM WAS REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE. THE EXPLANATION GIVEN TO ME WAS THAT I HIT A POT HOLE. THIS PAST WEEK THE SAME HAPPENED ON THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL, GIVING ME THE SAME EXPLANATION. THIS TIME I TOOK PICTURE OF THE RIM AND NOTICED THAT THERE 3 CRACKS IN THE INNER ASPECT OF THE RIM IN A RADIAL FASHION. PERSONALLY I DON'T RECALL BITING A POTHOLE OR ANYTHING ELSE. THE OUTSIDE ASPECT OF THE RIM IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I BELIEVE THIS IS A MANUFACTURING PROBLEM THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE A MAJOR ACCIDENT WHEN YOU DRIVE ON A HIGHWAY. THE PHOTOS I TOOK WAS WITH MY CELL PHONE BUT UNFORTUNATELY I AM NOT SAVVY ENOUGH TO TRANSFER. HOWEVER, I FIND AN EXPERT TO DOWNLOAD AND MAKE HARD COPIES. *TR *JS
