6/6/2018 - PHOENIX, AZ
AFTER ONLY 75K MILES MY MB HAS A FAILING PART THAT IS WELL KNOWN AMONGST ALL MB DEALERSHIPS. THE CAM SHAFT ADJUSTMENT UNITS BOTH INTAKE AND EXHAUST HAVE FAILED, CAUSING ME TO UNDERTAKE REPAIRS IN EXCESS OF $3K. FOR SUCH A NEWER VEHICLE THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND MANY DEALERSHIPS AROUND THE PHOENIX AREA HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS ISSUE FOR AWHILE AND HAVE EXPRESSED SHOCK THAT THIS HASN'T BEEN A RECALL ISSUE YET. I KNEW THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH MY MB WHEN I STARTED IT UP AND THERE WAS A RATTLING NOISE COMING FROM THE ENGINE PORTION OF THE VEHICLE. EACH SHOP AND DEALERSHIP I'VE TAKEN IT TO HAVE NOTED IT AND HAVE STATED THAT REPAIRS RANGE FROM $3K TO $4.8K. SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. I AM HOPING THE NHTSA WILL INVESTIGATE AND RECALL THIS CAR FOR THIS ISSUE AS IT IS A WELL-KNOWN ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.

TAKATA RECALL I CALLED THE MERCEDES DEALERSHIP IN BURLINGTON TO ADDRESS THE RECALL. THEY DON'T HAVE THE PARTS TO ADDRESS THE RECALL. IT'S BEEN A YEAR AND A HALF, AND THE DEFECT HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED. GIVEN THE DEFECT IS RELATED TO SAFETY, IT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED SOONER. NOT FEELING SAFE TO DRIVE WITH PASSENGERS. THANKS! -- JAG
