water leaked out of an insulated cooler sitting on the floor behind the right passenger seat. the water went thru the carpet and caused damage to the modules which then shut down the entire electrical system and caused the car to come to a complete stop and could not be started as we had just left the freeway. the car had to be towed to a dealer. it had to be dried out, reinstall the battery, replace the control modules. we were told this has been a problem even if a drink were spilled on the backfloor. the dealer told us it was a poor design for placement of all these electrical modules. the old parts are available. *tr

we have had continuing problems with the control buttons on the windows,temp controls, lights, etc. losing their painted covering/delaminating. mercedes has said that this is an environmental problem due to hand lotion and/or air fresheners and not a defect. we've have many cars over many years and we've never had this problem occur before. apparently mercedes has recognized the problem and sent a service advisory to their repair entities but they are refusing to acknowledge this as a defect. this is a safety problem as the letters and words on the buttons become illegible forcing the driver to take their attention from road to try and obtain the required action. *tr

i noticed since monday the 20th of january, the car while driving forward would suddenly go into reverse making a grinding sound. this happened twice in traffic and, could be dangerous if it had happened in an intersection. in addition to this malfunction, it quite often slips into neutral when i slowed for any reason; like, to give way or preparing to go into a parking space. these malfunctions could be dangerous and, may very well cause major accidents if not corrected. *tr

Pierre, SD

the fuel injection wiring harness has insulation that is badly cracked and flaking off causing fault codes and poor running. the body harness has cracked insulation as well. while this is an older car it is low miles and has spent its life stored indoors. i have a 1968 model amc car. the wiring is fine still. this was a serious design flaw from day one. it wouldn't be so bad if the replacement part was not so expensive - 750 dollars. *tr
