Our Mercedes E has only 39, miles on it. On October 26,the check engine light came on, the vehicle started shaking, and there was no power when accelerating. It was towed to the Mercedes dealership in arcadia, ca. Because the car has been driven for less than 40, miles, we asked the dealership's service and parts director if Mercedes would stand behind the quality of their products and help us with the safety issue. He told us to call the Mercedes customer service at Based on our previous experience, that is the standard discount Mercedes gives for its service in cases which do not involve a defective part. Irene told us there was no further discount being offered by Mercedes. A search revealed a class action lawsuit filed against Mercedes Benz usa in the United States district court - northern district of California case no. The suit was settled by Mercedes with the plaintiffs who alleged a defect in balance shaft sprockets in M V-6 engines that cause the gears to wear prematurely. The plaintiffs contend that Mercedes-Benz usa, llc "mbusa" had a duty to disclose this information to consumers at the time they purchased their vehicles. Based on this conduct, plaintiffs allege claims for violations of the New Jersey consumer fraud act, California's consumer legal remedies act and unfair competition law. We believe that this is a safety problem in some ES which mbusa knows about and that they should repair it for public safety reasons. I was driving my Mercedes E on I North bound somewhere near philadelphia. My family including my wife and my two sons were also on the car. Somehow, all of sudden, the vehicle was not under control, which is, the vehicle quickly slowed down and despite the fact that I kept pressing the gas pedal, the vehicle did not move I believe that the engine was shut down for some reason. I had to use hazard signals to warn the vehicles of the drivers behind me. Meanwhile, my son advised me to press the sos button of my vehicle. Fortunately some drivers noticed that my vehicle was not moving and some of them help me switch the transmission to neutral and helped push my vehicle to the road side. We also got help from police officers to escort my family members to the nearby train station and my vehicle was towed to the service department of ray catena, Edison, NJ, where I purchased the vehicle. My concern is that Mercedes E is supposed to be a car with good and safe quality, so why did it happen to my vehicle. I always have my car maintained by Mercedes service department on a scheduled basis. I and my family members could have gotten killed that day. I also worry that after the vehicle is repaired, the same or similar situation could happen again. So please advise what I should do with this event. Thank you. The contacts owns a Mercedes Benz E The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start without warning. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was unavailable.

Having always owned BMW's since the 60's and learning how to maintain and fix them, I've enjoyed German quality and engineering. However, of late, they have become so sophisticated, I no longer have the ability to do any work on my cars, which I enjoy doing. My wife had always wanted a Mercedes wagon and we found a very low mileage single owner E 4Matic wagon and bought it. We mostly use it for trips and enjoy its comfort on the highway. Although it isn't fuel efficient, it does perform well. From the first day, we have been unable to figure out how the Navigation system works glad to have Waze on our smartphones. The sound system is equally challenging to operate. The trip info on the dashboard is hard to read and understand when driving too much info. Compared to my BMW's, I am disappointed with this car. The local dealer is sells "units", not cars. For someone who has been a lifelong car enthusiast, I'm not fond of the dealer or the brand. We currently have a Mercedes Wagon with 15k miles on it. Also for context we have a Toyota mini-van and a Prius. This current wagon only seems special when you are on the highway. There it is in it's element. Extremely smooth, quiet yet with the classic German feel. Other than price it isn't much different from the Toyotas. Overall build quality actually seems to be less than the Toyotas I am sad to say. We have had a number of minor problems with the electrical and mechanical systems. The CD player still doesn't work. The right windshield wiper stopped working etc. In general it seems as the though the car is several years behind the competitors in features. I am very finneky about maintaining my cars and this has beena very good experience. It does have some quirks like the window washer motor but overall excellent quality. Recently saw some challenges with tires and alignment. Dealership says to check every 10k miles. Does not have camber adjustment so the inner tires get worn faster. Even though we had to replace the two rear air suspension bags and have had a couple of problems, the engine has never let us down once knock on wood. Having this many miles on the odometer might scare some people but being a mercedes it is meant to last over k miles. It still has a smooth idle and starts up like any other car at 60k miles. I love how solid the car is, especially the timeless design that reminds me of a classic mercedes! Also the handling is surprisingly very good, which is almost to BMW standards in sport mode. I could go on for hours about how much I love this car!!!
