BERBERIAN STOCKTON DEALER WANTS $2,400 TO FIX THE SBC (SENSOTRONIC BRAKE CONTROL) $740 TO FIX FRONT BRAKES. THE REP RALPH CARRASCO SAID THE DEALERSHIP CANNOT COMPLY WITH THE REMEDY FOR RECALLS AS THE TIME PERIOD FOR RECALLS HAS EXPIRED. REALLY? REPAIR OF FAULTY BRAKES EXPIRE? I WAS WAITING FOR THE LIGHT TO TURN GREEN WHEN THE BRIGHT RED MESSAGE "STOP! BRAKES UNSAFE STOP THE CAR IMMEDIATELY" [ CAN'T RECALL EXACT VERBATIM]. TO STOP THE CAR BECAUSE THE BRAKES HAD BECOME UNSAFE TO DRIVE .THE CAR FROZE UP, RESTARTS BUT WILL NOT SHIFT GEAR TO DRIVE. WHY DOES MB SELL OUTAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE BUT DEFECTIVE CARS? WHAT ABOUT CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW? NHTSA (NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY) PUBLISHED ON 4/05/2005 THIS SBC ISSUE AS MERCEDES-BENZ RECALL NO. 2004 050014. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 21, 2004.
