LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES

8/26/2009 - LOS ANGELES, CA
MY INSIDE DOOR LOCK STEMS ON MY CAR KEEP BREAKING OFF AND IN AN EMERGENCY, I'M AFRAID THAT THE DOOR COULD NOT BE OPENED FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CAR. I HAVE HAD THREE OF THEM TO BREAK OFF FOR NO APPARENT REASON. IT'S A 2004 MERCEDES BENZ E320 AND I DON'T FEEL THAT I SHOULD HAVE TO KEEP PURCHASING THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I PERSONALLY KNOW SOMEONE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH A 2008 MERCEDES C350, IS ANYONE COMPLAINING? I'M USUALLY ALONE IN MY CAR SO THERE ISN'T ANYONE/KIDS BREAKING THEM OFF. WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING? I'M SENDING YOU THIS COMPLAINT BECAUSE I JUST DISCOVERED ANOTHER BROKEN ONE LAST WEEK.

8/10/2009 - WEST SACRAMENTO, CA
I WAS DRIVING A 2004 MB E-320 ON THE ROAD, SUDDENLY THE LIGHTS ON THE DASHBOARD WERE ALL LIT UP AND THEN I LOST POWER TO THE CAR. I MADE MY WAY TO THE CURB ALONG INDUSTRIAL BLVD NEAR WEST SACRAMENTO. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO THE MB SACRAMENTO DEALERSHIP. A QUICK SCAN FOUND A FAULT CODE. IT WAS THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR MALFUNCTION. THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO REPLACE THE SENSOR.

MERCEDES BENZ AIRMATIC RIDE HEIGHT SYSTEM IS FAULTY. I HAVE RESEARCH SEVERAL FORUMS AND NOTICED A CONTINUOUS OF AIR STRUT FAILURE ON VEHICLES UNDER 50,000 MILES. THE PARTS TO REPAIR THIS FAULT CAN ONLY BE PURCHASED AT A MERCEDES BENZ DEALER AND ARE EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. ONE AIR STRUT COSTS AROUND $1500.00 AND USUALLY A COMPRESSOR MUST ALSO BE REPLACE FOR AROUND $500.00.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

9/29/2005 - SALINE, MI
DT: CONTACT STATED WHEN STEPPING ON THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL THE VEHICLE WILL NOT ACCELERATE. THIS CAUSED A SAFETY CONCERN BECAUSE WHILE MERGING INTO TRAFFIC THE VEHICLE FAILED TO ACCELERATE. THIS ONLY OCCURRED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS STOPPED OR WAS CLOSE TO STOPPING. THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME IT HAPPENED WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS STARTED UP. THERE WAS NO INDICATION AS TO WHEN THIS WILL OCCUR. IT HAPPENED APPROXIMATELY 30 TIMES. THE SERVICE DEALER ATTEMPTED TO REPAIR THE VEHICLE ONCE, BUT BECAUSE IT HAPPENED PERIODICALLY THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM. THE MANUFACTURER REFUSED TO SERVICE THE VEHICLE. CONSUMER FELT THE PROBLEM WITH THE VEHICLE COULD BE THE DRIVE- BY -WIRE OR COMPUTER SYSTEM. THE RIGHT REAR BRAKE LOCKED UP WHILE THE CONSUMER WAS MAKING A RIGHT TURN. THIS OCCURRED AFTER THE BRAKE HAD BEEN REPROGRAMMED. ON COLD MORNING THE GPS DID NOT WORK PROPERLY. THE LEATHER ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE AIR BAG WAS PEELING. THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM HAD TO BE REPROGRAMMED. THE FRONT WHEEL BEARING HAD PLAY IN IT. THE REAR ALIGNMENT WAS OFF SLIGHTLY WHICH CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO SHIMMY WHILE DRIVING ABOVE 62 MPH. ON AUGUST 22, 2005 WHILE DRIVING A LOANER MERCEDES BENZ E350 FROM THE DEALER THE CONSUMER EXPERIENCED THE SAME INTERMITTENT HESITATION ON ACCELERATION AS HE HAD WITH HIS OWN 2004 E350. THE CONSUMER BELIEVES THIS HESITATION PROBLEM IS NOT ISOLATED TO VEHICLE.
